This book offers a critical evaluation of the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities and gives to-the-point answers on current questions. Can the Framework Convention become a pan-European document, given the non-ratification by some states, such as Belgium, France, Greece and Turkey? Furthermore, what is the added value of the Framework Convention compared to other international minority monitoring mechanisms?
This volume brings together a number of leading international experts. Several authors are closely involved with the monitoring of minority protection in Europe. The book is of interest to a wide audience of academics, practitioners, policy makers, NGOs, and to all those interested in minority rights.
With contributions by Annelies Verstichel, Antti Korkeakivi, Asbjørn Eide, Bruno De Witte, Dilek Kurban, Francesco Palermo, Jan Clement, Joseph Marko, Julie Ringelheim, Kristin Henrard, Krzysztof Drzewicki, Olivier De Schutter, Pieter van Dijk, Rainer Hofmann and Sia Spiliopoulou Åkermark.
