Minority Voices


The Minority Voices programme is a 3-year development and training project being run by Minority Rights Group. The overall aims of the Minority Voices programme are:

  • To increase the inclusion of minority and indigenous peoples' perspectives in the EU media, particularly in coverage of development issues relating to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).
  • To increase awareness among development policy-makers of the specific needs of minority and indigenous communities in meeting the MDGs.

The aim of this website is to close the gap between journalists and minority activists. Journalists can quickly identify stories and media contacts - with a primary focus on minorities and indigenous peoples and the MDGs - while activists and individuals from within a minority or indigenous community can use this website to engage with EU-based media.

For more information about any aspect of the Minority Voices programme please get in touch via the Contact page.
