ECMI provides expertise on political participation to the CoE’s Committee of Ministers

A Conference on Effective Participation of Persons Belonging to National Minorities in Europe takes place 7-8 June 2010 in Skopje. It is organized in the framework of the Chairmanship of the “former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia” of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe. The theme of the Conference is “Strengthening the Cohesion of European Societies: Effective Participation of Persons Belonging to National Minorities in the Decision-Making Process”. The Conference provides an opportunity to make an overview of the current situation in the member-states of the Council of Europe and to consider to what extent the implementation of the Framework Convention on National Minorities has contributed to increased participation of minorities in the decision-making process.

ECMI’s contribution to the Conference includes a presentation by ECMI’s Senior Research Associate, Dr. Oleh Protsyk. He presents in a panel that examines conditions and strategies for improving minority participation in the political and public life. Dr. Protsyk will focus in his presentation on the role of electoral, party, and parliamentary rules and procedures in fostering more effective participation.

Dr. Protsyk heads up ECMI’s research cluster on Politics and Civil Society. The cluster seeks to improve our knowledge about formal and informal mechanisms of minority participation and our understanding of patterns of ethnic mobilization and inter-cultural dialogue. These issues are examined within the cluster from a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives. A major programme within the Politics and Civil Society Cluster is the Political Participation programme which provides the research for Dr. Protsyk’s presentation. See further under Political Participation.
Fostering integration, while respecting diversity, is one of priorities of the Chairmanship of the “former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia” of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe. The republic has taken over the chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers from Switzerland in May 2010.
