MEPs call on the European Commission to draft a directive on minimum standards for minorities in the EU, including benchmarks and measures.
#EUelections2019 - Minorities in the EU
Event date: 24/04/2019
In the face of persistent discrimination, Parliament calls for common rules to ensure that the rights of all national minorities are redressed and respected across the EU.
The rules stipulate that people belonging to national minorities are entitled to equal cultural, linguistic and educational rights, and member states are urged to end discriminatory practices.
Parliament is also calling on EU countries to end statelessness for Roma people and to guarantee that this minority group enjoys full human rights.
