In December 2000, the European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI)
organised a seminar in Tønder, situated in the German-Danish border
region, where prominent politicians, scholars, NGO activists and
minority leaders from both Estonia and Latvia discussed the problems
of minority education, linguistic policies, the role of NGOs and
developments in minority-related legislation. It was the first event
in the framework of the ECMI Baltic Project "Accession to the EU and
National Integration in Estonia and Latvia". The ECMI Workshop
"Multiculturalism and Minority Education" from 1 to 3 June 2001 in
Narva-Jõesuu, in the Estonian north-eastern Ida-Viru County, was a
follow-up event aimed at local grass-root activists who were given the
opportunity to follow presentations of local and foreign experts and
state officials and to share their experience of integration-related
activities in Estonia. The ECMI Workshop "Language Policy in Urban
Environment" from 8 to 10 June 2001 in Liepaja, Latvia, was a
follow-up event aimed at representatives of local self-governments
with a predominantly Russian-speaking population. The representatives
were given an opportunity to follow presentations of local and foreign
experts and state officials and to share their experience of
integration-related activities in a bilingual urban environment.
