The Work of the Committee of Experts of the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages (June 2006-June 2007)

The Work of the Committee of Experts of the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages... Vesna Crni-Groti* I. Introduction The Committee of Experts of the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages, a treaty signed under the auspices of the Council of Europe, continued with the monitoring of the implementation of the Charter by the states parties. The Committee of Experts examines the national reports submitted by the ratifying states and sends its own report to the Committee of Ministers with the proposal of recommendations to every state party whose implementation is not completely satisfactory. Today it has 22 states parties, while 11 other member states have signed the Charter. It is not a treaty that is `widely accepted' by the member states of the Council of Europe, although countries probably have various reasons for abstaining thus far from its ratification. The latest ratification was that of the Czech Republic on 15 November 2006. Since June 2006, the Committee of Experts has been very busy and has adopted 11 reports, eight of which have been made public: the first evaluation reports concerning the implementation of the Charter in Cyprus and Slovakia; and the second evaluation reports concerning the implementation of the Charter in Sweden, the united Kingdom, Slovenia and Denmark.

Vesna Crni-Groti* I. Introduction The Committee of Experts of the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages, a treaty signed under the auspices of the Council of Europe, continued with the monitoring of the implementation of the Charter by the states parties. The Committee of Experts examines the national reports submitted by the ratifying states and sends its own report to the Committee of Ministers with the proposal of recommendations to every state party whose implementation is not completely satisfactory. Today it has 22 states parties, while 11 other member states have signed the Charter. It is not a treaty that is `widely accepted' by the member states of the Council of Europe, although countries probably have various reasons for abstaining thus far from its ratification. The latest ratification was that of the Czech Republic on 15 November 2006.
