Although the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities (FCNM) and European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages (ECRML) are the main legal and inspirational frameworks for this project, other Council of Europe standards and mechanisms will underpin this work, including the European Charter of Local Self-Government, the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance and the Commissioner for Human Rights Office

Further, the case law of the European Court on Human Rights in regards to the rights of persons belonging to national minorities can be drawn upon and, in the longer term, provide a measure of the impact of such initiatives.
