Competence Analysis: National Minorities as a Standortfaktor in the German-Danish Border Region – Working with each other, for each other
On 17 February 2010 ECMI Director, Dr. Tove H. Malloy is presenting the study “Competence Analysis: National Minorities as a Standortfaktor in the German-Danish Border Region – Working with each other, for each other” to the Working Group on Inter-Regional Co-operation of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities, Chamber of Regions, in Strasbourg. The study was commissioned by the Schleswig-Holstein Landtag, under the auspices of the then President of the Landtag, Mr. Kayenburg and in co-operation with the Committee for European Affairs of the Landtag. The study provides a mapping of the competencies of the national minorities in the border region and analyzes these in terms of hard and soft Standortfaktors that have relevance for the joint German-Danish development of the border region.
The study was prepared by a team of 8 researchers from two institutes of the European Academy in Bolzano/Bozen (the Institute for Minority Rights and the Institute for Regional Development and Local Management) and in co-operation with the Barcelona Antenna office of the European Institute of Public Administration (EIPA) in Maastricht. Dr. Malloy functioned as scientific leader of the team and has presented the study in several fora, including the German Bundestag, the Schleswig-Holstein Landtag and the Regional Assembly of the Euro-region Sønderjylland-Schleswig. The study is available in three languages online at http://www.landtag.ltsh.de/parlament/minderheitenpolitik/minderheitenpolitik_.html
