This conference deals with the multiple issues posed for democratic societies by linguistic difference (whether that of immigrant groups, indigenous and other subordinated groups, linguistic minorities, and so on). As such, it is relevant to almost every modern democratic society as well as those aspiring to social peace and solidarity. An interdisciplinary group of scholars from the social sciences, law, and the humanities, from Belgium and Brazil to Chile and China will be gathering to discuss the contradictory and difficult practical and theoretical issues raised here.
