The European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages is one of the key conventions of the Council of Europe. It protects minority languages as a threatened aspect of Europe’s cultural heritage. When acceding to the Council of Europe, Georgia committed to signing and ratifying the Charter by 27 April 2000.

This project is a joint European Union/Council of Europe programme which aims to create the conditions for the ratification and subsequent implementation of the Charter. It also aims to promote linguistic, educational and cultural aspects of civic integration of national minorities.
