On June 4, 2021, Slovenia's National Assembly made a significant amendment to the country's Constitution, recognizing Slovenian sign language along with the sign languages of the Hungarian and Italian national minorities. This change places Slovenia among a select few European countries that have constitutionally acknowledged national sign languages.
What sets Slovenia apart even further is its unique constitutional recognition of the language of the deafblind, making it the first country in the world to do so. This landmark amendment not only underlines Slovenia's dedication to linguistic and social inclusivity but also sets a global precedent for acknowledging the unique communication needs of marginalized communities within a country's foundational legal document.
