Friday 14 January 2011  A meeting to deliberate,  finalise and present the final draft of the Charter on Language Rights and Language Policy in the Creole-Speaking Caribbean came to a close over the weekend in Jamaica.


The Charter which covers language policy and rights issues in education, the public services, the law and culture, will provide a regional framework for resolving the language problems of the Creole-Speaking Caribbean. The conference is the latest stage in an on-going process of intense debate and discussion by a team of 30 international experts on Caribbean languages. 


Among the delegates at the conference was Saint Lucia’s Governor General Her Excellency Dame Pearlette Louisy an advocate for the use of Creole-languages as part of the formal communications paradigm in Saint Lucia.   Dame Pearlette delivered a presentation entitled: Development in Language Policy and Practice in the Creole-Speaking Caribbean in the context of Saint Lucia”.
