Restructured ECMI web page
Since 2006, ECMI has sharpened its focus to cover four distinct areas of expertise in its research and its action oriented work. The ECMI website has now been restructured to correspond to these four priorities:
- conflict transformation in the Balkans, the Caucasus region and outside of Europe
- political participation of minorities in the institutions of the state at national, regional and local level
- equal access of minority communities to economic and social opportunities
- and language and cultural issues.
It is ECMI's aim gradually to produce key resources relating to these issue areas on its web-site, in addition to information about it current project activities. This includes, for instance, the clickable map of the settlement of ethnopolitical conflict in Europe, model legislation on political participation on minorities, samples of good practices on economic inclusion and materials relating to language and culture. In this way, ECMI hopes to complement the increasing interest in these thematic areas within the wider Europe, including the institutions of the European Union, the Council of Europe and the OSCE.
