The status of the Basque language in Navarre is characterized by the enforcement of a system of linguistic zones that modulates citizens’ linguistic rights depending on where geographically they wish to exercise such rights. In this chapter, the authors describe the legal situation of the Basque language and analyze the development of the linguistic policy in Navarre over the last few years, characterized as it is by its progressively restricted treatment with respect to its own language, which has brought about rebukes from European instances.
