Meeting Description: 3rd European Conference on Plurilingualism
‘Languages without Borders: Plurilingualism’

Plurilingualism does not mean the disappearance of borders, whether they are physical, political, religious, intellectual, artistic or any others. Such as a door, the border can be opened or closed; it is a marker of identity and of differentiation, but at the same time, it is a condition for a real and authentic exchange. Whatever the border, plurilingualism transforms them as areas of exchanges, enrichment and creativity, a creativity nurtured by an assumed and recognized otherness.

Such is the main set of themes for the 3rd European Conference on plurilingualism which will decline themselves into four henceforth standard registers: education, economy, politics and culture.

The Conference will be held at the Representation of the European Commission in Rome, Via quattro Novembre, 149-00187 Roma, on the 10th, 11th and 12th of October 2012.
