Language Rights of Linguistic Minorities: A Practical Guide for

The  guide aims to serve as a practical tool to assist policymakers and
right holders to have a better understanding of linguistic rights as well
as to provide best practices that could be replicated in different
contexts. It is aimed to assist in the efforts to achieve the necessary
balance between a state’s official language or languages, and its
obligations to use or respect the language preferences of linguistic
minorities. Protection and promotion of  language rights can also help to
preserve the world’s linguistic diversity.

The Guide aims to:
•clarify the various rights of linguistic minorities relevant to language
use and preferences;
•clarify the obligations of state authorities towards linguistic minorities;
•support the development and continuous improvement of effective (including
cost-efficient  approaches to and practices for, these rights of linguistic
minorities; and
•promote consistent approaches to the participation and inclusion of
minorities in public life and the implementation of their language rights
