From July 17 to 20, members of the readership of the Etxepare Basque Institute and the IALT department of the University of Leipzig have organized SPSPR (Sprachpolitik und Sprachplanung in der Romania), a summer course on minority languages. Focusing on Romance languages, the course will bring together experts from all over the world, including the general secretary of Kontseilua, Paul Bilbao.
At Deutsche Romanisten Verband, the experts will meet for four days in Leipzig to analyze the minority languages of Europe and South America, with the support of the Etxepare Institute and other entities.
As regards Basque issues, Paul Bilbao will offer a talk on the Donostia Protocol on Linguistic Rights and will make a comparison of the agreements on language policy that have been in force internationally.
In addition, the game EkoLinguA will be presented. Participants and students will have the opportunity to learn about the Play & Decide game created by Eusko Ikaskuntza and the Cluster of Sociolinguistics in 2015; it will be a good opportunity to learn about linguistic ecology.
