Abstract: (Abbreviated from the Preface, please consult the full text at https://rm.coe.int/new-media-report-web-en/168098dd88 for quotation) The European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages was created in 1992 as the only treaty dedicated specifically to the protection of regional or minority languages as part of Europe’s cultural wealth and traditions. During more than twenty years of monitoring reports, it has become clear to its Committee of Experts that the environment in which the languages that are covered by the Charter are used has changed profoundly, including in the field of the media. The understanding of the media provisions of the Charter has met with increasing challenges. In 2016 the Committee decided to form a working group mandated with the task of looking into these questions. The working group was given the task to elaborate a report on the challenges arising from the development of new media with respect to the protection and promotion of RMLs. The present report contains a presentation of the analyses and findings of the external experts, as well as the ensuing discussions by the Committee in order to summarise the ComEx’s views on the adaptability of the external experts’ recommendations. The report shows a way of dealing with a changing world in a dynamic way, as foreseen in the Charter and following the working group’s tasks.
