Tove Skutnabb-Kangas: Linguistic Genocide in Education - or Worldwide Diversity and Human Rights?
Dr. Tove Skutnabb-Kangas: Language, Education and (violations of) Human Rights. Symposium on Linguistic Rights, UN, Geneva, 24-04-2008

" Languages are today being killed and linguistic diversity is disappearing at a much faster pace than ever before in human history, and relatively much faster than biodiversity. [...]

It is claimed that linguistic and cultural diversity are as necessary for the existence of our planet as biodiversity. [...]

Linguistic human rights are necessary (but not sufficient) prerequisite for the maintenance of linguistic diversity. [...]

This has been a difficult but necessary book to write.  So much (unnecessary) pain and sorrow is included in the experience of many of the people and groups I describe. [...] I sincerely hope that you, dear reader, will enjoy the book:
become angry, desperate, frustrated, as well as reflective, optimistic, and eager to join me and others in demanding, suggering, creating, and implementing change."
