The Ljubljana Guidelines on Integration of Diverse Societies
By OSCE High Commissioner on National Minorities • 2012
Based on the experience of the HCNM and the advice of internationally recognized experts, these HCNM Guidelines seek to provide guidance to OSCE participating States on how best to integrate diverse societies. They cover structural principles without which good integration policies are difficult to conceive as feasible; principles for integration, which include necessary basic theses and values that relate more specifically to integration; elements of an integration policy framework, which provide an architecture for the elaboration and implementation of integration policies, with mechanisms, processes and cross cutting themes; and key policy areas, which covers the main thematic considerations based on the HCNM’s experience. The HCNM Guidelines are accompanied by a set of explanatory notes.
