Minority language protection in Europe: into a new decade (Regional or
Minority Languages, No.8) (18/05/2010)

This volume contains a selection of papers based on presentations given
at the international conference entitled "The European Charter for
Regional or Minority Languages: Achievements and Challenges",
co-organised by the Council of Europe, the Government of Spain, the
Government of the Basque Country and the University of the Basque
Country, which was held in Bilbao (Spain) on 20 and 21 April 2009. This
work looks at the future prospects of the charter in the light of the
experience gained over the first decade of the charter's existence. It
is evident that governments bear the primary responsibility in preparing
for ratification and in applying the charter, and this is illustrated by
case studies for some states parties to the charter. However, regional
and local authorities also play a very important role in relation to the
charter as they are confronted on a daily basis with the use and
protection of minority languages.
