The Observatory is an official association composed of legal entities and individuals. The founder members – who organized the First Meeting – are the legal entities described below. The Observatory has broadened itself to new partners and is constantly open to any structure which would share its goals and support the European Charter for Multilingualism unreservedly. Beyond its statutory authorities, the Observatory is a flexible evolving organisation with an open structure and result-oriented. Its two components are the experimental committee and the scientific committee united into an initiating committee.
