The Institute is registered as an association in accordance with the Bill of 1901. It consists of associations and elected members of national and local parliaments from the district of Dunkirk (from Dunkirk to Armentieres).
It aims at protecting, passing on and promoting Flemish in social, cultural and economic life. It also seeks to have the authorities allow the teaching of Flemish as a regional language in France.
Four committees carry out the missions the Institute has devoted to itself : Academic work, Teaching, Collecting idiomatics and studies on the Flemish language, Promoting Flemish.
The associations involved in the promotion of regional languages at school were invited by Euro MP François Alfonsi and French MP Paul Molac, chair of the Study Group for Regional Languages and Cultures at the National Assembly, to take part in a meeting about the official schooling of regional langages in France.
Pupils and students go back to school, and so can Flemish learners. They have many options to learn West Flemish :
Today 25 West Flemish and bilingual road and street signs were inaugurated in Wormhout as part of the "Yes to West Flemish" commitment charter.
The closing event of the 4th West Flemish Week was a Flemish evening gathering last Friday in the Augustinian Museum of Hazebrouck.
