European Policy-to-Outcome Indicators and the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages (ECRML), by Federica Prina, was released today at ECMI’s website.
With this paper, Dr. Federica Prina provides a preliminary conceptual framework for developing a set of indicators. The indicators will be tools to assess the impact of the ECRML in the states parties.
The ECRML is a treaty under the auspices of the Council of Europe (CoE). It was opened for signature in November 1992. To this date, the Charter has been signed by 25 states. It entered into force in March 1998.
ECMI Working Papers are written either by the staff of European Centre for Minority Issues or by outside authors commissioned by the Centre. As ECMI does not propagate opinions of its own, the views expressed in any of its publications are the sole responsibility of the author concerned.
The European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI) is a non-partisan institution founded in 1996 by the Governments of the Kingdom of Denmark, the Federal Republic of Germany, and the German State of Schleswig-Holstein.
ECMI was established in Flensburg, at the heart of the Danish-German border region, in order to draw from the encouraging example of peaceful coexistence between minorities and majorities achieved here. ECMI’s aim is to promote interdisciplinary research on issues related to minorities and majorities in a European perspective and to contribute to the improvement of interethnic relations in those parts of Western and Eastern Europe where ethnopolitical tension and conflict prevail.
