Valdemar Tomaševski - Minority Rights

Valdemar Tomaševski 19%


The topic of today's session is widely spread in Lithuania despite the fact that in most member states the problems of national minorities in general do not exist as they were simply solved. The States of West democracy hammered out two basic documents regulating the rights of national minorities, namely the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages and the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities.

The road was already put ahead for the states of central-eastern Europe, thus they did not need to discover anything but just to approve the documents and implement them into live. Moreover, after signing the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities in 2000 Lithuania had to ratify it as well. It seemed that all the problems of national minorities had to disappear from the docket of problems until that time. Unfortunately, today at the end of 2009 the problems not only did not diminish, but even the regress was noticed in the rights that had been acquired in 20 century.

The fact that in the meantime in 2004 Lithuania joined the European Union should be mentioned as crucial as well. Such a paradoxical situation was difficult to predict even for a person of extraordinary political intuition. Unfortunately, the truth is that today, as a national minority in Lithuania, we have less rights in comparison to the period of the first years of  independency of Lithuania, which was gained in 1991. I will present some examples to prove my words.
