Policies for preservation of indigenous languages: auctors and responsibilities

Evgeny Kuzmin, Evgeny Kuzmin

Resumo


This paper summarizes the results and conclusions of eight major international conferences on the preservation of linguistic diversity, held in recent decades within the framework of the UNESCO Intergovernmental Information for All Programme, designating the preservation of languages and development of multilingualism in cyberspace as one of its top priorities. The paper also defines key problem areas of the linguistic world view and presents valuable experience of the implementation of linguistic and ethnocultural policies in Russia, one of the most multi-ethnic and multilingual countries of the world. The data analysed show that in order to ensure access to information and knowledge for all, preserve cultural diversity and build inclusive knowledge societies, comprehensive science-based efforts should be taken both at the political and practical levels to preserve not only small indigenous languages, but all languages, including the largest ones. Recommendations are provided on the elaboration and implementation of a multilevel and multifold national policy aimed at preserving indigenous languages; key actors to be involved in such a policy are defined, as well as their areas of responsibility and measures to be taken in the fields of education, science, culture, politics and the media.
