General Comments on nationality public service media and cinematic art

In 2019 the Ombudsman for the Rights of Minorities in Hungary issued two significant documents about the enforcement of the rights related to the cultural autonomy of the nationalities: General Comment No. 3/2018 on the enforcement of the cultural autonomy of the nationalities in public service media broadcasting and the General Comment No. 4/2018 on the enforcement of the cultural autonomy of the nationalities in the field of cinematic art and film production in Hungary. 

In these General Comments, Elisabeth Sándor-Szalay elaborated professional recommendations and guidelines to facilitate the effective enforcement of nationality rights, in particular nationality cultural autonomy in the operation of both the public service media providers and the bodies responsible for cinematic art and film production.

The summaries of both General Comments are available here.
