Regenesis, especially revitalisation,

needs  LHRs

This “agentless” neoimperialistic control is the context within which I look at (the lack of) linguistic human rights, especially in education.  I claim that

Demands for LHRs must be based on historical and present-day analysis of why languages need regenesis in the first place and what kind of structures, ideologies and practices keep them down;

The analysis must also look into the future (what are the alternative scenarios) and plan arguments and strategies accordingly.

If more and proper rights are granted NOW, it saves the state from later court cases and large compensations. Thus it is also in the interest of states to grant proper Human Rights NOW.
