Sia Spiliopoulou Åkermark, ass. prof. in international law, head of research at Åland Peace Institute: “Education rights of minorities - how are they implemented today around Europe and in Sweden?”
This year (2016) we note the 20th anniversary of the OSCE Hague Recommendations Regarding the Education Rights of National Minorities and the 10th anniversary since the adoption of the Council of Europe Thematic Commentary on Education under the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities. How has the understanding on minority education evolved in these past twenty years and how does the situation look like 'on the ground'? The presentation starts off from research results presented in the new book Towards Openly Multilingual Policies and Practices - Assessing Language Minority Maintenance Across Europe (Multilingual Matters, March 2016).
This lecture is organized by the Hugo Valentin Centre in collaboration with the research node Science, Validation, Partial Perspectives: Knowledge Production Beyond the Norms (Vetenskap, validering, partiella perspektiv: Kunskapsproduktion bortom normerna) at the Centre for Gender Research (CfG), Hugo Valentin Center (Dept of History) and the Dept of Literature, Uppsala University.
