SEMINAR ON NATIONAL MINORITIES AND EDUCATION 

Strasbourg, 18 October - A seminar on minorities and education is being 
organised today in Strasbourg within the Chairmanship of the Russian Federation 
of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe. It will bring together 
some 100 government representatives, experts, researchers and representatives 
of civil society from across Europe. Those taking part will examine the latest 
developments relating to the protection of national minorities, in particular 
in the field of education. The participants will consider possible responses to 
linguistic concerns as well as other important subjects of relevance to 
national minorities in our increasingly multicultural societies.

The seminar will focus on aspects concerning education within the Framework 
Convention for the Protection of National Minorities and will highlight 
pertinent work of other international organisations, including the OSCE High 
Commissioner on National Minorities.
