Independent Expert on minority issues
Given the breadth of work that demands attention with respect to minority issues, and the limitations on the work of the Independent Expert, she has focused her initial work on three broad strategic objectives. These are:
1. Increase the focus on minority communities in the context of poverty alleviation, development and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs)
2. Increase the understanding of minority issues in the context of promoting social inclusion and ensuring stable societies
3. Mainstream the consideration of minority issues within the work of the United Nations and other important multilateral forums.
