The MIME Project (Mobility and Inclusion in a Multilingual Europe – 7th European Framework Programme) analyses the several aspects of multilingualism in the European Union and their implications in terms of effective integration, respectful of the cultural and linguistic diversity.
The project, coordinated by the University of Geneva, brings together researchers from 20 universities, representing 16 different countries, in sectors as vast as varied as education, finance, economy, political science, psychology, sociology, philosophy, geography, linguistic sciences, or law.
In the framework of the mission entrusted to the CEJE, Professor Christine Kaddous and Laura Marcus, researcher, are studying the impact of the multilingualism regulatory tools (or their absence) on the behaviour and protection of consumers in the European internal market.
The research project aims to derive essential legal principles that are making a functioning internal market possible, respectful of the European cultural and linguistic diversity. Different practical solutions to linguistic challenges faced by consumers but also by citizens, companies and the civil society will be proposed.
