In this Congress, research related to the study of socio-discursive interactionism of language will be exchanged and updated. In this seventh meeting, special emphasis will be placed on multilingual education and the effective integration of minority languages into it.

It is the first SDI International Meeting to be held in the Basque Country (and in the Spanish and French States), but the influence of the SDI, thanks to the contributions of our collaborators from the University of Geneva, has greatly contributed to the treatment and study of the languages in the Basque Country and, particularly, to their didactics. Various institutions and documents reflect this influence both with regard to the teaching of languages (Basque and other languages), to children or adults, and with regard to the training of language teachers.

We are convinced that the presence of international researchers will provide the scientific community in general and the Basque community in particular, the opportunity to broaden our interactionist and socio-discursive vision. It will also develop our knowledge and understanding of linguistic diversity, the functioning of languages and their didactics, so that the study of language and the teaching of languages is approached in an increasingly scientific and efficient way.

Our interest in the study of language activity in multilingual and minority language situations also leads us to open the field of SDI to other approaches, some traditionally related to sociolinguistics, such as the study of new speakers of minority languages, or broadly speaking, the study of revitalization processes of minority languages.

UNESCO's recommendations for linguistic diversity and multilingual education (2014), its initiatives in favour of indigenous languages (IYIL 2019), as well as the proposals of the Council of Europe (2019) insist on the need for multilingual training of all citizens.

We believe that we can only effectively contribute to the defence of such diversity, as well as to a global sustainable development, through a multilingual education which actively integrates minority languages.


To make known to the Basque and international community the studies related to multilingual education, which have a great impact on Basque society.

To promote and disseminate theoretical and methodological reflection based on socio-discursive interactionism in order to approach the study and innovation of multilingual education focused on a minority language such as Basque.

To exchange and learn about studies related to language teaching from different European and American contexts.

To promote research and attract young researchers to specialize in the study of multilingual education with minority languages.

To offer the possibility of complementary training for practicing teachers interested in the subject matter of the Workshop.
