Chapter Summary

Minority Rights Group International (MRG) is the only worldwide organisation that works on minority rights, and, more generally, on the spectrum of minorities issues as well as on indigenous peoples. Forty-two years after its founding, MRG recently decided to transform its approach to become a campaigning organisation, combining a variety of methods with the one goal of bringing about real change in the lives of minorities and securing them the rights to which they are entitled. MRG decided to focus its work around five major themes, which themselves became the long-term campaigns. The five were chosen after extensive consultation with minorities on the most important issues affecting them, and with MRG and other experts own knowledge, and are: conflict and genocide prevention; education; land and property rights; gender; and development.

Keywords: campaigning approach; campaigning organisation; indigenous peoples; minority rights group international (MRG)
