Come and join us to learn how the Romani language and its many variants are an integral part of our common European cultural and linguistic heritage and wealth.
The learning objectives include exploring:
• The interlinkages between Romani language and its history
• The Romani perceptions of life through “Pachiv”, Roma customary law
• The importance of marginalized languages in today’s public discourse
In the framework of the International Decade of Indigenous Languages 2022-2032 and on the occasion of the World Day of Romani Language celebrated on November 5, the Knowledge and Learning Commons (KLC), in collaboration with the Division of Conference Management (DCM), is organizing an online workshop to raise awareness on Romani language heritage and the history it preserves.
The workshop is meant to be the first of a series of workshops dedicated to minority languages with the aim to create awareness, instill pride in our languages and positively contribute to the development and promotion of multilingualism. In light of the large number of language minorities around the world, the workshop will enable reflections on the importance of preserving our languages as a tool to redress inequalities and leave no one behind.
