Agenda - Civil society thematic workshop on national minorities (332kb) >>>


The Civic Solidarity Platform, the Netherlands Helsinki Committee, the Helsinki Committee for Human Rights in Serbia and organized the Civil Society Thematic Workshop on National Minorities in Belgrade. Workshop participants were representatives of the civil society and experts in national minorities from OSCE participating states, representatives of the Office of the High Commissioner on National Minorities and OSCE Mission to Serbia, representatives of the Task Forces of Serbian, German and Swiss OSCE Chairmanships, embassies and other international institutions and organizations.

The Bolzano/Bozen Recommendations on National Minorities in Inter-State Relations and Ljubljana Guidelines on Integration of Diverse Societies provided the starting point for the discussion. Workshop participants spoke about the modalities for a better implementation of recommendations for intercultural and interethnic dialogue, and the importance of education for the integration of national minorities. Panelists gave specific examples of integration of national minorities in the countries of the Western Balkans and South Caucasus.

Workshop participants had a very lively discussion, which will be the basis for the documents on the protection of the rights of national minorities that the Civic Solidarity Platform will be working on in 2016. This will also be one of the priorities of the German OSCE Chairmanship in the field of human rights.

Organization of the workshop was supported by the OSCE Mission in Serbia and Foundation to Promote Open Society (OSF).
