Where do Italian and Romansh currently stand in Switzerland? A symposium organised jointly by the Directorate of International Law and the Federal Office of Culture (FOC) provided an opportunity to debate the subject. Switzerland's commitments under the Council of Europe's Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities and the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages were also discussed. The conference, opened by the director of the FOC, Isabelle Chassot, was closed by Federal Councillor Ignazio Cassis, head of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs.
