Mission and Vision

Mission: the mission of the Sociolinguistics Cluster is to develop sociolinguistics knowledge for the revival and normalisation of the Basque language (Euskara). To create suitable infrastructure, resources and conditions to achieve this, to build bridges between the scientific and applied fields, and to create meeting point networks with agents in the field for reflection as well as cooperation.

Vision:Within the space of four or five years the Sociolinguistics Cluster will be an institution that is the main reference in the sociolinguistics of Basque; one that will have contacts with agents at home and abroad and one that, through cooperative projects and with the necessary autonomy, will have the interests of its members at heart and will respond to the needs of knowledge about the process for reviving the Basque language.
