Minority Rights Group International campaigns worldwide with over 150 partners cross some 60 countries to ensure that disadvantaged minorities and indigenous peoples, often the poorest of the poor, can make their voices heard.
MRG is the leading international human rights organisation working to secure rights for ethnic, religious and linguistic minorities and indigenous people around the world.
We work with minority communities, providing education and training to enable them to claim their rightful place in society. We lobby governments and the United Nations alongside and on behalf of minorities. We publish authoritative reports that are widely valued by academics and journalists, while our pioneering legal cases programme is advancing the protection of minorities under international law.
Our work offers overwhelming evidence that the inclusion of minority communities leads to stronger, more cohesive societies. We believe it is clear that exclusion can result in instability, conflict, and in the most extreme cases, genocide. We have worked for more than 50 years to promote peaceful coexistence and sustainable social change.
