Defending Minority Nations

In the society of knowledge, education is the key to success and science is the magnet for economic development - both of them often denied to minorities. Our federation fights for minority success in higher education, influential arts and scientific research.

Individual human rights are starting points but cultural rights of indigenous and minority communities are cornerstones of civility that deserve vigorous defense. The Forerunner Federation collects best practices and exemplary illustrations of protecting, preserving and furthering time honored cultural traditions of minorities and small nations.

The Forerunner Federation calls for submission of best practices to share and celebrate them. Please send your best practice submission to

In addition to calling for action, the Forerunner Federation is directing its resources and efforts towards preferentially supporting minority serving higher education and minority focused research in several countries.
