Seminar on “20 Years of the CEI Instrument for the Protection of Minority Rights – A Retrospective Glance and Future Challenges”, Trieste (Italy)
The Seminar on “20 Years of the CEI Instrument for the Protection of Minority Rights – A Retrospective Glance and Future Challenges” is taking place in Trieste on 9 October 2014 back to back with the Meeting of the Committee of National Coordinators (CNC) to be held on 10 October.
The event is promoted and organised by the Austrian CEI Presidency and the CEI-Executive Secretariat on the occasion of the 20th Anniversary of the CEI Instrument for the Protection of the Minority Rights.
From the very outset of their cooperation, the CEI Member States have devoted particular attention to questions related to national minorities. Such an approach has reflected their intention to give political cooperation a higher profile within the CEI scope of activities with special regard to national minorities.
Elaborating the CEI Instrument was one of the first attempts to create a systematic legal framework for this sensitive area at multilateral regional level. The event will also serve as a platform for promoting dialogue and cooperation on questions pertaining to national minorities in the Region.
The Seminar will be followed by a concert of the Donauwellenreiter Ensemble.
