The Bolzano/Bozen Recommendations on National Minorities in Inter-State Relations
Based on the experience of the HCNM and the advice of internationally recognized experts, these HCNM Recommendations seek to provide guidance to OSCE participating States on how best to manage their relations with neighbouring States when they concern the issue of national minorities. These HCNM Recommendations cover general principles, State obligations regarding persons belonging to national minorities, benefits accorded by States to persons belonging to national minorities abroad and multilateral and bilateral instruments and other mechanisms. The HCNM Recommendations are accompanied by a set of explanatory notes.
