on World Language Problems

(vidu ankau Centro de Esploro kaj Dokumentado pri la Monda Lingvo-Problemo)

The Center for Research & Documentation on World Language Problems (CRD) is an international body created for the advancement of study, documentation, and education on all aspects of language problems in international relations. CRD is particularly interested not only in the examination of language problems per se, but also in exploration of language planning at the international level.

The Center sponsors a scholarly periodical, Language Problems and Language Planning , published three times a year by John Benjamins Publishing Company, Amsterdam. Its newsletter on interlinguistics, Informilo por Interlingvistoj , seeks to keep researchers abreast of recent developments in the field. CRD also publishes books and reports from time to time and organizes and sponsors conferences and seminars.

The Center operates in two locations. Its European headquarters is in Rotterdam, where its research library, the Hector Hodler Library, is located. It also operates as a unit of the University of Hartford, in Hartford CT.

The Center cooperated with the United Nations Office of Conference Services to organize an annual conference in New York from 1982 to 1996. For most of the early years CRD published annual conference reports, with all papers given at the conference in question. The Center now publishes, in cooperation with University Press of America, a series of monographs which includes selected papers from the conferences.
