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

“As a journalist I want to be transparent with my audience about my own biases. Readers need to understand how stories are framed. I want to complicate the narrative and widen the frame.” Amazing presentation by @pkaltzada

“A democratic society develops mechanisms and institutions to allow the coexistance and cooperation of different cultural communities,” says Zora Popova of @ECMIFlensburg at our #NMBR18 summer school. We agree fully!

“The challenges of multiculturalism are not teaching minorities, but majorities. Because school curriculums are politicised we need to teach plural histories & literature to understand who we are today,” says @NasarMeer. #NMBR18 with @ECMIFlensburg

ECMI retweeted

We’re talking about #multiculturalism with @NasarMeer at our #NMBR18 summer school. He says that “States have to recognise difference, not just among individuals but groups too. Local contexts are important in conversations about citizenship, plurality & equality in Europe.”

“Europe needs young people with new ideas and fresh energy, because we need #AnotherEurope,” says our Sec Gen @GDauwen at #NMBR18 summer school opening.

First lecture of #NMBR2018 attacks head on the conundrum of definition: when is a minority a minority? Which markers? Ascriptions? Do we need a definition? Who decides who is a minority? Is it a good term? What do you think?

Our summer school is now officially off to a good start with director @tovemalloy and @IdeasForEurope director Dauwen opening remarks. Looking forward to exchanges and opinions on diversity, heritage and social change #NMBR2018

ECMI retweeted
