What are Minority Rights?


ECMI is happy to announce the release of its educational cartoon “What are minority rights?”. The cartoon answers the question by introducing the basic principles of minority rights and referring to the key provisions of the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities (FCNM). The cartoon was produced by the ECMI in cooperation with the Centre Maurits Coppieters.

The awareness-raising educational cartoon “What are the minority rights?” has three key ambitions: to educate, to promote respect for diversity and its normative framework, and in the longer term, to have an impact on the wider policy level throughout Europe.

The official launch of the cartoon took place on 14 October 2016 at the Brussels Media Center in Brussels. 

If you have any questions or comments regarding the cartoon, please contact us at info@ecmi.de
