In a special post to be published on the GCLR website on Global Language Advocacy Day, Prof. O'Brien shares more about the work she has undertaken in the past years with "INTERACT", and how translation can be an empowering tool for crisis response, recovery and preparation.

TAAL ALS MENSENTECHT:
DE INTERNATIONALE DAG VOOR TAALACTIVISME

Organized by:

Drongo

Event description:

On February 22, 2022 at 8PM CET, Drongo together with the Rutu Foundation, will be hosting an online panel discussion (Language is a Human Right: Global Language Advocacy Day) to raise awareness and initiate dialogue on language as a human right.

"Taal is op de eerste plaats een communicatiemiddel. Maar taal is ook een essentieel onderdeel van wie we zijn. Het recht op het spreken van de eigen taal is een van de culturele rechten en is vastgelegd in diverse internationale verdragen.  

 

Welke taal je spreekt kan voor een belangrijk deel bepalen of je binnen of buiten wordt gesloten. Bijvoorbeeld in de zorg waar de aanwezigheid van een tolk het verschil tussen leven en dood kan betekenen. Of in het onderwijs waar meertalige kinderen regelmatig worden ontmoedigd en soms zelfs bestraft wanneer zij hun thuistaal spreken."

The panel discussion will be in English and Dutch. Speakers include: Lucio Bagnulo, Ellen-Rose Kambel, and Simone Goosen. The panel will be moderated by Maaike Verrips, Drongo's founder and director. Register here to join the session.
