Danish-German Minority Issues

The Danish-German Minority Issues Cluster, established in 2022, reflects the ECMI’s commitment to the Danish-German border region, which is widely perceived as a best practice example of conflict resolution and minority accommodation and inclusion. The Cluster will critically examine the minority experiences of this region in close cooperation with regional stakeholders and communities. What are key elements of minority accommodation, empowerment and inclusion in the model? What conflicts and issues remain to be resolved given the political climate that acknowledges and supports national minorities? How does this create new spaces for cross-border region-building and for 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 the Cluster aims to answer.
