Vesna Crni-Groti* I. Introduction The European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages1 has 25 states parties among 47 member states of the Council of Europe. In 2011, the number of states parties to the Charter remained the same as no new member state decided to sign or ratify this treaty. The eight existing signatures have not been followed by ratification, so Bosnia and Herzegovina has remained the last state to become a party to this treaty. 2 The states parties to the Charter have to submit periodical reports every three years to the Secretary General of the Council of Europe. The Committee of Experts, an independent body, evaluates these reports and proposes recommendations that are adopted by the Committee of Ministers.3 This committee also decides to make evaluation reports public. In 2011, two reports were made public which had been adopted by the Committee of Experts in 2010: the third report on Denmark and the fourth report on Germany.
