Batuz aldatu – Social consensus to influence language policies

2020ko Novemberk 09 By

The social consensus initiative to influence language policies promoted by Euskalgintzaren Kontseilua has taken the name of Batuz aldatu. It is time to make the leap: for linguistic rights, for social cohesion, for the Basque. To this end, the document presented on 19 June is intended to be a roadmap for the new language policy.

Objetive and direction

The proposal focuses on several principles: the need to respect linguistic rights in order to combat discrimination and deepen coexistence, the cross-cutting nature of linguistic policy, the socio-political and progressive nature of the standardisation process… All this is based on the fact that linguistic policy must be developed taking into account the linguistic diversity of Euskal Herria.

The main objective for the future is to create conditions for a comfortable use of the Basque. To this end, linguistic rights must be guaranteed in all areas, so that anyone who wants to do so has no objection.

Two directions have been set in this way. On the one hand, the universalization of language knowledge must be encouraged so that all citizens have the right capacity to express themselves in the Basque language. On the other hand, spaces for the use of the Basque should be created, developed and interrelated in comfortable conditions, so that anyone who wishes to do so has no objection to its use.

Future challenges

Based on the document agreed with the agents, Euskalgintzaren Kontseilua poses three challenges for the near future.

  1. Expanding the content and reaching a larger number of agents: it is clear that there is a need to reach social areas that have not been worked on, as well as other agents in the social areas that have joined this proposal. And of course, Kontseilua must also reach the citizens who are the engine of a language.
  2. Initiating the definition of sectoral strategies: to influence the normalization process of the Basque, and based on the priorities set out in the document, it is intended to address work by area.
  3. Achieving the leap from social consensus to political consensus: the process of normalization of a language is social and political. It needs a strong social leg, but also a strong political leg. That is why Kontseilua intends to turn these strong social consensus into political consensus.
