February 21st is International Mother Tongue Day! 

To learn more about this topic and possibly incorporate it into your learning program, we have selected one practical guide for you to consult:

The Language Rights of Linguistic Minorities: A Practical Guide for Implementation (2017), by the UN Special Rapporteur on Minority Issues

This guide aims to assist 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.

HREA’s Online Resource Center contains this guide, and many other HRE resources that may be useful for your work. Visit: https://hrea.org/resource-center-search/
