A sample list of UN rulings that deal with linguistic rights

As UNESCO web site has it, International Human Rights Law plays an important role in setting standards for linguistic rights and, especially, for the protection and promotion of the identity of linguistic minority groups. It provides the normative framework for developing principles of democratic governance and multicultural policies aimed at managing ethno-linguistic conflict.

Here is a short sample list of UN rulings that include dispositions or deal directly with language issues and the rights of their speakers. The list is borrowed from http://www.ciemen.org/mercator/onu-gb.htm.
