The first of its kind will take place at Flensborghus (Danish Minority Cultural Centre) in Norderstrasse 76, Flensburg, Germany on 3-6 July 2012. The course responds to an increasing demand for specific courses on minorities in conflict situations, The intention is to strengthen practitioners' knowledge and capacities to address the dynamics of minority/ies-majority/ies relations in contexts of conflict. Minorities and Conflict seeks to respond to the needs of a variety of practitioners, including: Young diplomats, International organizations' officials, and NGO representatives. The organizers are pleased to announce that on Friday 6th July the inaugural training programme will be concluded by the "HCNM 20 Years On" Conference to be held at Flensborghus (Danish Minority Cultrual Centre).
