Language constitutes the foundation of communication and is fundamental to cultural and historical heritage.

UNESCO Most Programme

To raise awareness about linguistic rights and to provide tools for decision-makers in governments, parliaments, and civil society, UNESCO's MOST Programme has collected the most relevant provisions in international conventions, declarations and multilateral treaties, which pertain to linguistic rights.
International Human Rights Law plays an important role in setting standards for linguistic rights and, especially, for the protection and promotion of the identity of linguistic minority groups. It provides the normative framework for developing principles of democratic governance and multicultural policies aimed at managing ethno-linguistic conflict.
