Do we want Europe to become a plural society, where each group retains its own language? To what extent does the rapid spread of English as a lingua franca affect educational systems? What is the impact of globalisation, nationalism and the flow of immigrants and refugees on the use of languages in educational systems? Although it is commonplace to stress that linguistic diversity is an essential component of EU identity, the Community has failed to integrate the second and third generations of Muslim populations in Europe through education. Has mother tongue education and linguistic rights in education attached to a particular category of persons, who share a common cultural identity and identify themselves with a set of values and principles, been placed at the head of political agendas?
Topics dealt with are: legal (in)security and (in)equality before the law: the right of participants in the education process to know what they can expect of the government in education and the certainty of the concrete interpretation of legislative provisions, legislative technical planning and its conformity with the legality principle, principles of good law making in education, the nature of experiments in education (Experiments can make it clear how education institutions carry out legislation in practice and which are the factors of success and failure. However, they cannot be used to find out whether the legislature is sufficient clear or to find out whether the outlines of political policy making have been described clearly enough in the law. Experiments cannot give a final answer whether the law satisfies the legality principle and the principles of good law making. Experiments can be used to examine how legislation must be elaborated in practice); freedom in educational policymaking v. legal security in education (The democratic legitimation of a general framework of educational legislation includes overall standards laid down in the law, which establish the contents and main principles, but leaves it to the legislature to delegate the concretisation and development to another organ).
The language of the Conference is English. Papers can be sent in French and German as well, but no interpretation will be provided.
