In what concerns the situation of national minorities, 2014 was a complicated year, with the events in Ukraine, the increase in the occurrence of xenophobic discourses and attitudes throughout much of Europe, and the unfavourable economic context all conducing to a political environment in which the rights of national minorities were under pressure, in particular with regard to the Roma minority. Responding to this context, the Advisory Committee carried out an ad hoc visit to Ukraine and subsequently issued a Report outlining the main findings of the visit. The Opinions drafted by the Advisory Committee in 2014 reflect the fact that the Roma minority continued to lack sufficient access to basic services and meaningful opportunities for integration in their respective societies. In addition to the country-by-country monitoring activities, throughout 2014, the Advisory Committee continued its work in drafting a new thematic commentary, focusing on the personal scope of application of the Framework Convention.
