Details and specs


Constitutional Pioneers is an edited volume on the role, function and methods of Language Commissioners worldwide. Composed of contributions from both academics and practitioners, this two-part volume combines theory with practice in its analysis of these new actors designed to protect the rights of linguistic minorities around the world. The first part places these Language Commissioners firmly in the legislative and institutional framework in which they must operate, and examines the challenges which sometimes derive from it. The second part presents a series of case studies by members of the International Association of Language Commissioners which demonstrate the various approaches, success stories and challenges they encounter in carrying out their mandates. This collaborative volume is an original contribution to the study of Language Commissioners and will be of great value to anybody interested in the protection of linguistic minorities and language rights. It will also be of general interest to researchers, students and practitioners in the field of human rights, political science, public administration and governance.
