Chapter Summary

Linguistic rights are usually in the forefront of minority protection measures and international documents regard linguistic rights as particularly important. The most important international documents on linguistic rights: the ECRML, the relevant articles of the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities and the relevant OSCE documents, all reflect a minority-focused language rights approach.Meanwhile, the European Union is officially promoting the idea of multilingualism both in its policy towards its official languages and more modestly in some political documents recognising minority languages. This article offers an interpretation of the role of linguistic diversity in the European Union, whether the existing legal regime on the use of languages at international and EU levels are likely to promote a truly multilingual Europe or displaying more limited goals. Additionally, this paper also analyses in this wider context, the main documents adopted in EU bodies on the situation of minority languages and linguistic minorities within the Union.
