This issue of the IJMS continues a recently established thematic threat by focussing on the governance of linguistic diversity. Edited by Fernand de Varennes, it analyses linguistic rights from a comparative perspective. Emphasis is given to the similarity of problems faced by governments in adopting linguistic legislation in different regions; at the same time, the specific historical conditions leading to regional differences in the governments' regulation of language use are highlighted.
