Danish-German Minority Issues

The Danish-German Minority Issues Cluster, established in 2022, reflects ECMI’s responsibility to the Danish-German-Frisian region where the Centre is based. Widely perceived as a best practice example of conflict resolution and minority accommodation and inclusion, the cluster will critically scrutinize the minority experiences of this region in close cooperation with regional stakeholders. What are key elements of models of minority accommodation, empowerment and inclusion? What conflicts and issues remain in a political climate acknowledging and supporting national minorities? How does this create new spaces for politics of cross-border region-building, of developing border regions as attractive living spaces, and what will be the impact of these developments on minority life? These are some of the key questions this Cluster strives to answer.
