The Cornish National Minority Report 2 (Excerpts)

Including the Cornish – a unique case for recognition
  • Ian Saltern
Chronik

Abstract

This report comprises a statement requesting the recognition of the Cornish as a minority worthy of protection according to the Council of Europe Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities. This statement has been backed by all political parties represented in the Cornwall Council, the unitary authority for Cornwall in the United Kingdom. The report puts forth arguments in support of the recognition of the Cornish minority and why the Cornish are currently “impeded from maintaining and celebrating their distinct identity”. Finally, the advantages of an inclusion of the Cornish into the Framework Convention are being highlighted.
