Speaker: Daniel Weinstock, Professor, Faculty of Law, McGill University

Daniel Weinstock presented his research on the political ethics of bilingual education. Given the benefits of speaking multiple languages, Weinstock says that many arguments against bilingual education lack ethical justification. However, in situations where vulnerable languages compete with more globally dominant ones, privileging the vulnerable language may be warranted. This perspective could be applied to Quebec, where Weinstock argues that some limits on bilingual education may be justified.
