The Statement on Language Policy PDF (Accessible Version), developed through the national language policy network of the New Zealand Diversity Action Programme, is intended to provide an elementary framework to prioritise, implement and monitor language policy development in New Zealand pending the development of a more substantial strategy. Hopefully it will stimulate further debate and action.
This booklet contains the Statement, the language priorities from the New Zealand Action Plan for Human Rights and details of Te Waka Reo, the national language policy network. It is published as a contribution to the United Nations International Year of Languages.
