- The EU Commission decided to register FUEN’s 1 million signatures campaign
With the decision on 29 March 2017, the European Union (EU) Commission decided to register the Federal Union of European Nationalities(FUEN)’ Minority SafePack Initiative – the European citizens’ initiative for the minorities in Europe.
The EU Commission had refused to register the Minority SafePack initiative of FUEN in 2013. The General Court of the European Union announced in February 2017 and annulled the Commission’s initial decision. As a result of the reassessment of the proposed initiative, the Commission has decided to register the initiative calling for improvement of protection of people that are members of national and linguistic minorities in Europe and strengthening cultural and linguistic diversity in the EU.
