Rules for living together
Different groups can only live together in a political system if the needs of all ethnic groups are taken into consideration and have a balanced relationship with each other. The three language groups in South Tyrol co-exist on the basis of a complex and special legal system that combines the rotation of offices, equal numbers as regards committee membership and the proportional representation of all language groups.
- Ethnic proportionality in the public services and in the system of government
- Bilingualism in public offices and services, two or even three place names
- Teaching in pupils’ native language
