New Report On Germany's Treatment Of National Minorities
The Council of Europe Advisory Committee on the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities published today its Third Opinion on Germany, and the government’s comments.
The report says German authorities have "continued to support the development of the languages and cultures of persons belonging to national minorities."
It also raises concerns about the threats to the linguistic, cultural and historical heritage of the Sorbian minority and the particpation in public life of Roma and Sinti people.
