Evaluating Policy Measures for Minority Languages

The project Evaluating Policy Measures for Minority Languages: Towards Effetive, Cost-Effective and Democratic Implementation (2000-2001) was aimed at an examination of the notions of "effectiveness" and "cost-effectiveness" in the particular field of minority language policy. Effectiveness and cost-effectiveness can be considered as principles of good governance, to which a third one must be added, namely the principle of "democracy". The latter, in this context, means more than formal democratic insitutions, and refers to the existence of structures facilitating democracy from below.
