This chapter comments on Articles 24–26 of the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities (FCNM). Articles 24–26 lay out the monitoring mechanism of the FCNM. More specifically, Article 24 designates the Committee of Ministers (CoM) as the competent body for monitoring the implementation by states parties of the Framework Convention. Article 26 however, states that the CoM is not the sole body that evaluates the adequacy of measures taken by a state party. It is assisted by an Advisory Committee (AC), which ensures monitoring efficiency. The monitoring procedure is completed under Article 25, requiring states parties to submit a report providing full information on legislative and other measures giving effect to the Framework Convention within one year of its entry into force for each state.
