Minority Secretariat

The Minority Secretariat was founded in Berlin in 2005. It assumes the secretariat function for the Minority Council in its daily work, and functions as the Council’s interface to the federal government, the two houses of the German Parliament (Bundestag and Bundesrat) and the Council of Europe. The Minority Secretariat also informs the public, institutions, and political stakeholders about the four autochthonous national minorities and ethnic groups of Germany and their current issues.
