I would first like to emphasise the role of the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities, which is an instrument born of the ideals of peace and freedom of the European nations, and which is extremely important for the unity of the European continent, for the creation of a democratic... 25/01/2021 | 17:10:43 Dear colleagues, As usual, the January session hosts the debate of this report, which presents a description of the progress or regression recorded by states in the monitoring process or during the post-monitoring period.
