Cornish feedback needed

Some opportunities for Cornish feedback and comment to highlight.

The first concerns the Institute for Minority Research EURAC. They are inviting people belonging to national minorities, non-governmental organisations and experts working in the field of minority protection to provide input into a study on indicators for assessing the impact of the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities (FCNM). I'm sure the Cornish have some very valuable insights to provide. The contact details for EURAC consultation can be found by clicking here.

The second is from the Runnymede Trust UK Race & Europe Network who are organising a roundtable event. The roundtable aims at bringing together equality organisations, civil servants, academics and other stakeholders interested in the topic , to discuss the concept of positive action and its use in addressing discrimination. Issues that will be discussed include the new Equality Bill and the drafted European Anti-Discrimination Directive and how they can promote positive action. A good practise discussion panel with businesses, NGOs and public authority representatives will be outlining examples of positive action measures and policies. The Positive Action Roundtable will be hosted by law firm Eversheds in Central London. For more information, contact the UKREN Secretariat at mailto: ukren@runnymedetrust.org.

Thirdly the Guardians comment is free site has created the Liberty Central. One of the facilities allows you to ask Liberty lawyers your civil liberties and human rights queries – anything from your own experiences to questions you have always wanted to ask. Post them in the thread here.

Finally of course the new Equality and Human Rights Commission should be encouraged to continue the support for Cornish inclusion within the FCNM that the CRE showed. Please direct your thoughts to Regional Manager Mr Qaiser Razzak at the UK Equality and Human Rights Commission.
