Switzerland: 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 Bern and Aarau from 5-7 November 2012 in the context of the monitoring of the implementation of this convention in Switzerland.

This is the third visit of the Advisory Committee to Switzerland. The Delegation will have meetings with the representatives of all relevant ministries, public officials, NGOs, as well as national minority organisations.

The Delegation includes Ms. Aliona GROSSU, member of the Advisory Committee elected in respect of Moldova, Ms. Milena KLAJNER, member of the Advisory Committee elected in respect of Croatia, Mr. Einar NIEMI, member of the Advisory Committee elected in respect of Norway, and Ms. Michele AKIP, Head of the Secretariat of the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities.

Note: Switzerland submitted its third State Report under the Framework Convention in January 2012. 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 Switzerland.
