Norway: 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 Oslo and Tromso from 2 - 5 May 2011 in the context of the monitoring of the implementation of this convention in Norway.

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

The Delegation includes Ms Aleksandra Bojadjieva (member of the ACFC elected in respect of “the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia”, Mr Rainer Hofmann (President of the ACFC and member elected in respect of Germany), Ms Barbara Wilson (Vice-President of the ACFC and member elected in respect of Switzerland) and Ms Michèle Akip, Head of the Secretariat of the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities.

Note: Norway submitted its third State Report under the Framework Convention in July 2010. 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 Norway.
