Slovak Republic: visit of the Advisory Committee on the Framework
Convention for the Protection of National Minorities
A delegation of the Advisory Committee on the Framework Convention for
the Protection of National Minorities will visit Bratislava and Kosice
from 30 November - 04 December 2009 in the context of the monitoring of
the implementation of this convention in the Slovak Republic.
This is the third visit of the Advisory Committee to the Slovak
Republic. The Delegation will have meetings with the representatives of
all relevant ministries, public officials, as well as persons belonging
to national minorities and Human Rights NGOs.
The Delegation includes Ms Ilze BRANDS-KEHRIS (First Vice-President of
the Advisory Committee and member elected in respect of Latvia), Mr
Giorgi MELADZE (member of the Advisory Committee elected in respect of
Georgia) and Mr Alan PHILLIPS (President of the Advisory Committee and
member elected in respect of the United Kingdom). They will be
accompanied by Ms Eva KONECNA of the Secretariat of the Framework
Convention for the Protection of National Minorities.
Note: The Slovak Republic submitted its third State Report under the
Framework Convention in July 2009. Following its visit, the Advisory
Committee will adopt its own report (called Opinion), which will be sent
to the Government for comments. The Committee of Ministers of the
Council of Europe will then adopt conclusions and recommendations in
respect of the Slovak Republic.
