 Mercator’s Wiki on minority language learning by [[https://​www.mercator-research.eu/​en/​|Mercator European Research Centre on Multilingualism and Language Learning]] is an online factsheet system which provides information on minority language education.

Whereas the Regional Dossiers focus on minority languages in the formal education system, this Wiki covers minority languages that have only a (very) small place in the national education system, or none at all. Mercator’s Wiki on minority language learning by [[https://​www.mercator-research.eu/​en/​|Mercator European Research Centre on Multilingualism and Language Learning]] is an online factsheet system which provides information on minority language education.
