Meeting Description:

Theme:

The range of problems raised by diversity of languages in international economic and political integration processes calls upon innovative, efficient and fair language policies to manage multilingualism. Language policies are increasingly acknowledged as being a necessary component of many decisions taken in the areas of labour mobility, access to knowledge and higher education, social inclusion of migrants, and they can affect companies' international competitiveness and the democratic control of international organisations.

The symposium ''Economics, Linguistic Justice and Language Policy'' aims at bringing together economists, philosophers, applied linguists and sociolinguists, legal scholars, and social scientists in general. The purpose is to discuss, from an interdisciplinary perspective, the socio-economic effects of language policies, the impact of language dynamics and language planning on justice and inequality at the national or international level, as well as the connection between democracy, decision-making and linguistic diversity.
