Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities -
Collected Texts (5th edition) (08/10/2008)

The protection of national minorities is a core issue for the Council of
Europe, and one of the major achievements in this field is the Framework
Convention for the Protection of National Minorities. The entry into
force of the Framework Convention on 1 February 1998 was indeed an event
of universal stature, for it is the first ever legally binding
multilateral instrument devoted to the protection of national minorities
in general. Its importance is widely acknowledged, and the number of
ratifications has grown rapidly. The aim of this collection is to
provide all those interested in the protection of national minorities
with a user-friendly compilation of the basic texts concerning the
Framework Convention. In addition to the Framework Convention and its
explanatory memorandum, the collection contains texts pertaining to the
monitoring mechanism in general and the Advisory Committee in
particular. It further provides the state of signatures and
ratifications as well as declarations and reservations.

Raising young refugees' voices in Europe and beyond (30/09/2008)

Young refugees and asylum seekers represent a group of displaced youth
with specific needs and assets. Their situation urgently requires closer
examination, and youth policies addressing their needs must be devised,
taking into account their difficult past experiences and their often
insecure or instable situation in host countries, including emotional,
social and economic challenges. The aim of this report is to convey the
main points of a training seminar organised in close co-operation with
the UNHCR, Representation in Strasbourg, it brought together young
forcibly displaced persons and other young people working in their
favour. The organisers and participants of the seminar were driven by
the strong conviction that all young people need to participate in
building Europe, that social cohesion implies the inclusion of
marginalised, minority youth and that nobody can talk about young
refugees needs and assets better than young refugees themselves. This
publication presents the most important ideas, reflections and
recommendations formulated by the participants, it is a collection of
testimonies and ideas from young people who have themselves experienced
various situations, difficulties and successes as young refugees in

COMPASITO - Manual on human rights education for children (04/02/2008)

Living among other people, in their families and communities, children
become aware from a very early age of questions related to justice, and
they search for the meaning of the world. By fostering an understanding
of human rights, shaping opinion and developing attitudes, human rights
education strongly supports this natural interest and learning process.
This is what human rights education is about and this is what ‘Compasito
– manual on human rights education for children’ is for. ‘Compasito’ is
a starting point for educators, teachers and trainers who are ready to
deal with human rights education with children of 7-13 years. The book
familiarizes the reader with the key concepts of human rights and
children’s rights, and provides substantial theoretical background to 13
key human rights issues, such as democracy, citizenship, gender
equality, environment, media, poverty, and violence. The 42 practical
activities serve to engage and motivate children to recognise human
rights issues in their own environment. They help children to develop
critical thinking, responsibility and a sense of justice, and help them
learn how to take action to contribute to the betterment of their school
or community. The manual also gives practical tips on how it can be used
in various formal and non-formal educational settings.
