ECMI's 15th Anniversary

Press Release

On 4 December 2011, the European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI) has existed for 15 years. Founded in 1996 by the governments of Denmark, Germany and Schleswig-Holstein, the Centre is an independent and inter-disciplinary institution which draws upon an international core staff, supplemented by a number of non-resident Senior Research Associates from all over Europe and beyond. The Centre also maintains active relations with other academic institutions and NGOs involved in conflict resolution and inter-ethnic relations and engages in collaborative projects in these fields. While its core funding is provided by its founding governments, the Centre actively pursues project-based funding to support its activities. Two regional offices in Georgia and Kosovo complement the research-based head quarters in Flensburg.  

The 15th anniversary will be celebrated with a reception in the head office of the organization in Flensburg’s Kompagnietor building. A documentary film tracking the early history of the Centre will be screened during the reception.

Date: 5 December 2011
