Approaching the 4th monitoring cycle
With Shaping the Frame across the Cycles ECMI invites academics and practitioners to a meaningful reflection on the role and monitoring functions of the Advisory Committee (ACFC) on the Council of Europe Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities (FCNM).
The Conference will be the occasion for an analysis on the achievements and hindrances in the protection of minorities through monitoring mechanisms. It will be structured in thematic sessions and benefit from the participation of experts directly involved in the work of the ACFC.
The conference is to be conceived as a practical occasion to reason on the experiences gained by the ACFC to date and reflect on the potential challenges posed by the upcoming 4th monitoring cycles.
