ECMI participates in conference on new Danish appropriations law for the Danish minority in Schleswig-Holstein

On 23 March 2010, the Danish Parliament unanimously adopted an appropriations bill establishing by law the annual subsidies allocated to the support of the Danish minority in Schleswig-Holstein. The Law which came into effect 1 April 2010 stipulates the beneficiaries and procedures of the annual appropriation from the Danish state budget.

In an effort to begin the correct and transparent implementation of the new Law, the Danish Ministry of Education and the parliamentarian committee tasked with the oversight of the Law hosted a two-day conference 19 and 20 April 2010 at the University of Aarhus’ conference centre, Sandbjerg Gods near Sønderborg, Southern Denmark. ECMI Director Dr. Tove H. Malloy participated in the conference and provided a presentation on similar legal instruments adopted by European states.

Information about the Law (nr. 287 of 29.3.2010) is available in Danish on the homepage of the Danish Parliament at www.retsinformation.dk/Forms/R0710.aspx.

Place and Date/Ort und Datum: Sønderborg, 19-20 April 2010
