The Lund Recommendations on the Effective Participation of National Minorities in Public Life 1999

A list of all treaties entered into by the Council or Europe (a different entity, by the way, than the Council of the European Union).

Specific to EuroParl:

Kuijpers Resolution on the languages and cultures of regional and ethnic minorities in the European Community 30 October 1987
