      THE RIGHTS OF MINORITIES: A COMMENTARY ON THE EUROPEAN FRAMEWORK CONVENTION
      FOR THE PROTECTION OF NATIONAL MINORITIES

      Edited by Marc Weller

      688 pages, bibliography & index

      ISBN 0-19-927858-X hardback £95.00

      The rights of minorities are becoming increasingly important, especially in
      the context of enlargement of the European Union, yet there are remarkably
      few treaties dealing with minority rights under international law. The
      Council of Europe's Framework Convention for the Protection of National
      Minorities is one of these. This volume provides the first expert
      commentary on the Convention, which is the principal international document
      establishing minority rights in a legally binding way. Many minority rights
      such as those to political participation, non-assimilation, and the use of
      native languages are not incorporated in other major Human Rights
      agreements. The Convention is therefore often taken to be the leading
      standard in the international law of minority rights.

      This commentary offers a detailed article-by-article analysis of the
      Convention, by a group of international legal experts in minority rights.
      Their commentary draws upon the Convention's negotiating history and
      implementation practice, in addition to examining the pronouncements of the
      Advisory Committee, which is the implementation body attached to the
      treaty. It offers a clear sense of the concrete meaning of the provisions
      of the Convention to scholars, students, and members of minority rights groups.
