Chapter Summary

This essay seeks to identify the role the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities has played hitherto in the law of the European Union, and how such a role could be developed further. The European Union has not been given explicit competences in the field of the protection of minorities. A number of provisions of the EU allow for the adoption of certain instruments which may contribute to improving such protection in the EU Member States. The second section of this paper examines the tools at the disposal of the European Union to promote the rights of minorities in the EU Member States playing a positive role in the development of the principles of the FCNM in Europe. The third section of the paper asks how the EU could ensure that the development of EU law will not lead to violations of the FCNM by its Member States.
