|Linguistic Rights are,
on the most fundamental level, implemented in national constitutions or
constitution acts. To strengthen a comparative perspective in social science
research on language conflicts as well as in policy-making, UNESCO's MOST
Programme has collected constitutional provisions pertaining to language
or linguistic minorities.
The texts of national constitutions were analyzed and reproduced on the basis of the information provided by the International Constitutional Law (ICL) project at the University of Wuerzburg, Germany. In addition, the database contains articles related to linguistic rights as collected by Fernand de Varennes in his publication: de Varennes, Fernand 1996. Language, Minorities and Human Rights. The Hague: Australia: Kluwer Law International. These include official language(s) provisions.
