Working Groups in FUEN


Five working groups are currently operating under the umbrella of the FUEN.

The Working Group of German Minorities (AGDM)

The Working Group of Slavic Minorities (AGSM)

The Working Group of Turkic Minorities (TAG)

The Non-Kin-State Working Group

The Education Working Group

With support of the umbrella organisation, the working groups give the FUEN member organisations the opportunity to devote themselves to specific topics which meet their particular needs and challenges.

The work is based on the meetings which each of the five working groups holds twice a year: during the FUEN Congresses and during the annual meetings or seminars, which last several days and are organised in cooperation with a FUEN member organisation.

Following the principle of solidarity, the aims of the working groups are to strengthen the network of minorities, to promote the exchange of ideas, to pool expertise, to develop problem-solving strategies and thus to advance the work of the autochthonous minorities in Europe.
