Title: Respecting Linguistic Diversity in the European Union
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=WLP%202
Series Title: Studies in World Language Problems 2
Description:

After the accession of ten new member-states in 2004, the number of
official EU languages increased from eleven to twenty. In 2005, the Council
of the European Union decided to expand the existing legal framework for
Irish and for other languages, such as Basque, Catalan and Galician, which
are official in all or part of the territory of a given member-state. On 1
January 2007 Bulgaria and Romania joined the EU, increasing the number of
official EU languages still further. This book addresses the challenge of
respecting linguistic diversity within the EU and is intended as an
introduction to the issue for those not already familiar with EU law. It
also provides an analysis of the potential of the Charter of Fundamental
Rights of the European Union to enhance respect for linguistic diversity.
Each chapter has been written by a recognised expert in the field. The
appendices bring together the basic legal norms relating to linguistic
diversity within EU institutions.
