From Theory to Practice: The European Charter for Regional Or Minority Languages : International Conference Organised by the Ministry of the Interior and Kingdom Relations of the Netherlands and the Council of Europe, Noordwijkerhout (Netherlands), 30 November - 1 December 2001
The conference provided participants with the opportunity to take the pulse of regional or minority languages, not only where the charter has been ratified and is presently being implemented, but also where states are preparing for future signature and ratification. The role of local and regional authorities in the context of the charter was recognised and it was emphasised that they could contribute significantly to its success. Finally, certain legal aspects of the charter were examined, including the extent of its flexibility as a legal instrument and the mandate and structure of the commit.
