54 Commercial Street
London E1 6LT

The Minority Rights Group works to secure the rights of ethnic, religious and linguistic minorities and indigenous peoples worldwide and to promote co-operation and understanding between communities. It does this through publishing reports and training manuals, working with partners on training events and maintaining a presence at international forums. It promotes the active participation of minorities and indigenous peoples in decisions affecting their lives, promotes the implementation of international standards, develops conflict resolution and reconciliation initiatives and advocates the needs for mainstreaming minority rights in development policies. Minority Rights Group International is a significant organisation in the field of cultural diversity. It also places a strong emphasis on gender issues, and some of the publications give a brief reference to issues that impact early childhood development, such as lack of access to health services for certain indigenous groups (though there is no specific programme on early childhood development). The resource centre is not open to the public
