Protecting Minority Language Rights

by George Ngwane

In this succinct, well-framed work, noted activist and scholar George Ngwane tackles the issue of minority language rights with alacrity. The book will offer those interested in linguistic rights insights into the dilemmas facing African countries, set against the backdrop of developments in the international framework for the promotion of linguistic rights. In drawing on Cameroonian policies of which he remains a key influencer, George Ngwane offers practical insights and bold solutions that should prove insightful for those tasked with determining the intricacies by which African development potential can be realised through measures that promote both the identities and the future socio-economic and development trajectories of their countries.
