In this video, Professor Francesco Palermo, focuses on Greece in his examination of how states can embrace diversity and counter the challenge of extremism.
The country’s authorities have not ratified the treaty, yet Palermo (photo), Vice-President of the Advisory Committee on the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities (FCNM), is confident that Greece would benefit from the monitoring and good practice it offers.
The treaty, Palermo says “helps society as a whole to be grow more multicultural and be aware and celebrate its diversity.
“It is not the solution of all problems but it is a brick in building the whole wall and making the picture a little bit more stable. The FCNM offers a bright spectrum of practical solutions to problems.”
