On Linguistic Rights


Some months ago, I was interviewed by Professor Peter D McDonald of St Hugh's, Oxford, about language rights and linguistic diversity. I could talk about my track record working in international structures as a Catalan writer, and how this has influenced my understanding of the rights of the language communities. You can read the full text in PEN International's website.

"PEN made it possible for cultures that do not have the support of a state, cultures that as I would say have no embassy, to participate in the debate with full rights".
Celebrating the proclamation of the Universal Declaration of Linguistic Rights in Barcelona with Ned Thomas, president of Welsh PEN, and Edixa Montiel, Wayuu lawyer representing the World Council of Indigenous Peoples.

The interview is part of the AHRC-funded Writers and Free Expression.
