Abstract

The Council of Europe Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities Anders Rönquist On 10 November 1994, the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe adopted a Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities. They decided to lay it open for signature during the beginning of 1995. The Ministers noted that this is the first international treaty which is exclusively devoted to the protection of national minorities and which establishes substan- tive legal principles and incorporates a monitoring mechanism under interna- tional law for their implementation. They expressed the hope that the Conven- tion would enter into force as soon as possible. The Convention will enter into force after twelve member states of the Council of Europe have ratified it. The Convention will, upon invitation, also be open to non-member states. The explanatory report to the Convention' indicates that these 'other states' are those states which are participating in the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe (cscE). With the adoption of this Framework Convention, the Council of Europe has achieved one of the major objectives for the protection of national minor- ities set by the Heads of State and Government at their Vienna Summit
