„The report by Mr Ferenc Kalmár is a huge achievement in the field of the protection of traditional national minorities and fills in a long-lasting gap in addressing concerns of millions of European citizens. The most relevant challenges are tackled from language use and education rights to territorial self-government arrangements.

Mr Kalmár succeeded in demonstrating that respected minority rights are beneficial not only to members of minority communities, but to all those who live in a given country, even for the majority communities strengthening the whole democratic political system.”


Kinga Gál, Member of the European Parliament,
Co-Chair of the Minority Intergroup
