The chapter analyses how the applicable international law - primarily treaties adopted under the auspices of the Council of Europe -- affects the Russian-speaking minorities in the post-Soviet countries. In particular, the experiences of two former Soviet republics - Armenia and Latvia - are examined as case studies. The study illustrates different ways in which the international legal regime impacts on linguistic minorities in the new states and provides examples from a number of cases decided in the European Court of Human Rights.

Keywords:   Russian language, minority languages, law, Latvia, Armenia, language policy
