Report of the Special Rapporteur on minority issues on her mission to the Republic of Moldova (2016)

The Special Rapporteur on minority issues, Rita Izsák-Ndiaye, conducted an official visit to the Republic of Moldova from 20 to 29 June 2016.
The Republic of Moldova is a multi-ethnic, multireligious and multicultural society with a considerable legal framework for the protection of minority rights; nevertheless, the lack of institutional attention and dedicated budget provisions, compounded by the recent economic crisis, remain major obstacles for its proper implementation.
