It Ryk soe mei de Ried fan Europa yn petear gean moatte om effisjinter te rapportearjen oer it Europeesk Hânfêst foar Regionale of Minderheidstalen. No binne der strukturele swierrichheden yn de rapportaazjesyklus, dy’t net goed binne foar it Frysk. Dat docht bliken út ûndersyk dat DINGtiid útfiere litten hat troch it Mercator Kennissintrum.

Frysk taalbelied wurdt earder swakker as sterker by gemeentlike weryndielingen. Dat docht bliken út ûndersyk dat DINGtiid, it ryksadvysorgaan foar de Fryske taal, útfiere litten hat troch Mercator Europeesk Kennissintrum foar Meartaligens en Taallearen.
