The Council of Europe’s Committee of Experts of the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages has reported some progress in Switzerland’s implementation of the Charter but has also invited the authorities to take additional measures.
In its latest report on Switzerland, the committee notes that the school inspectorate in the Canton of Graubünden/Grischun/Grigioni periodically monitors Italian and Romansh-language education, in line with its recommendations.
However, the authorities are invited to take additional measures to promote the use of Italian in economic and social life, given the importance of this field in daily life.
The same recommendation applies to Romansh which should be better promoted in the public sector. In particular, the committee calls on the authorities to pay special attention to activities in economic and social life when implementing the “Strategia digitala rumantscha”, including the use of Romansh by federal public service providers.
