The overall objective of the project is to improve access to rights for minorities at various levels of government in South East Europe based upon Council of Europe standards in this field.
Three specific objectives will contribute in a complementary manner to achieving this overall objective:
- To support local governments to enhance policies and capacity for the implementation of minority rights in selected municipalities in the region.
- To identify and share good practices among the participating municipalities and develop adaptable models for use in other municipalities in the region;
- Based on evidence from the local level coupled with recommendations from Council of Europe monitoring reports, to provide support on legislative and policy changes at the central government level.
