The European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages is the European convention for the protection and promotion of languages used by traditional minorities. Together with the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities it constitutes the Council of Europe's commitment to the protection of national minorities.
The aim of the various projects in this programme is to develop language education policies (including reference instruments) for a plurilingual and intercultural education not only in the field of teaching/learning foreign languages and the languages of schooling, but also for the language education of adult migrants.
This project aims to offer support to policy makers and practitioners in providing language education and assessment for adult migrants in order to facilitate their integration into society by developing instruments responding to migrants’ specific and wide-ranging needs.
