The China Autonomy Programme (CAP) of the Norwegian Centre for Human Rights has aimed to study ways and means for protecting and promoting the interests of the national minority population in the Chinese legal and political system, including aspects related to linguistic minorities and cultural development. The review studies the second phase of the programme from 2003 to 2008, funded with NOK 13.3 mill. The project resulted in four research publications, however all in Chinese only. In English language, the Beijing-Oslo Recommendations on the Protection of the Rights of Linguistic Minorities may be viewed as the most significant output from the CAP in terms of policy influence. The Beijing-Oslo recommendations will be included in a small subset of research under the project, to be published as a special issue of the International Journal of Minority and Group Rights.
