CALL FOR PAPERS - Symposium “Economics, Linguistic Justice and Language

Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, School of Business and Economics Berlin,
Germany, 2-3 March 2015

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, policy makers, 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.

Prospective participants are invited to submit an abstract on one of the
following or related topics:

1. Theoretical models of linguistic justice and linguistic democracy (e.g.
minority languages, immigrants, supranational integration, higher

2. Assessment of the socio-economic consequences of linguistic diversity,
language policies and dynamics.

3. Evaluation of the costs, benefits and the fairness of language policies.

4. Languages, linguistic rights and power.

5. Multilingualism and economic activities.
