Bridge Building and Integration in Diverse Societies

In order to gather information for this project, we are asking minority organisations, civil society and regional or local municipalities to participate in a nine-question survey, which will help us build a picture of ethnic groups’ and minority communities’ activity across the OSCE member states. 

Below you will find the questionnaires available in several languages. There are two questionnaires, one for ethnic groups, minority organisations and similar institutes, and another for public officials, municipal governments and authorities. Please choose the category and language that best suits you, download the file, fill it out, and return it to bridgebuilding@ecmi.de by 15th April 2016. If you cannot find a language in which you are able to work, please let us know and we will endeavor to provide a suitable translation. 

Information gathered will be used only for the purposes of this study, and participants’ contact details will be treated confidentially.

The OSCE, the High Commissioner on National Minorities and ECMI would like to thank you for your participation in this groundbreaking project. We aim to promote understanding and recognition of ethnic diversity as an asset to any society, so please support us by distributing this questionnaire to any group, organisation or municipality that might be able to contribute to the study.
