22nd January 2018 – gathering of the "Language and Rights" group

In Brussels in recent days, Dr. Paweł Rutkowski (head of the Section for Sign Linguistics) participated in a session of the “Language and Rights” workgroup set up by the European Language Council (Conseil Européen pour les Langues). Issues related to sign languages often came up in the discussion about the further activities of the group (including putting together a report with recommendations). We are pleased to announce that the next session of the “Language and Rights” group will take place in Warsaw in September 2018. It will be accompanied by a conference addressing the issue of language rights.
