IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Newly established Eastern Partnership Minorities Network invites minority organisations to join
The Eastern Partnership Minorities Network (EaPMN), a network in the Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries, offers new training and networking opportunities for organisations working on minority issues in the region. The five establishing partners invite minority organisations to join the network and enhance in cooperation the full participation of minorities in the EaP process.
As part of a 3-year programme funded by the European Union and launched by Minority Rights Group Europe (MRG), a human rights organisation based in Budapest, the network will build the capacity of minority organisations in the region to undertake effective human rights advocacy at national and European level, in particular within the EaP process.
EaPMN members are minority activists and civil society organisations in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine, including ethnic, linguistic, national, religious minorities, indigenous peoples and visible minority communities. As a result of the programme, minority communities in the region will more effectively participate in shaping reforms and influencing the decision-making processes. In the long run, the cooperation will result in minority-informed policy development and implementation in the EaP countries.
