Al lingva demokratio = Towards Linguistic Democracy = Vers la democratie linguistique. Proceedings of the Nitobe Symposium of International Organizations (Prague, Czech Republic, July 20-23, 1996).
Fettes, Mark, Ed.; Bolduc, Suzanne, Ed.
The proceedings of a 1996 symposium organized in conjunction with the 81st World Esperanto Congress include papers and summaries of discussions concerning the relevance of Esperanto to contemporary international life. The papers and discussion transcripts are presented in their entirety in the language (Esperanto, English, or French) in which they were presented, and summaries of papers are presented in all three languages. The summaries are followed by a set of recommendations and the text of the Prague Manifesto of the Movement for the International Language Esperanto, an independent initiative. Paper topics include the history of the Esperanto movement, language policy and linguistic practice, international communication needs, linguistic diversity, multilingualism, less commonly taught languages, languages in global education, the power of Esperanto, language policy development, and the politics of Esperanto.
