Welcome to DIANET!
DIANET (Dialogue for Interaction, Advocacy and Networking Capacity Building) is the most recent project undertaken by the King Baudouin Foundation as part of its wider programme, the Minority Rights in Practice in Southeast Europe , which operates at national, regional and European levels with the aim of improving minority rights practice and participation across all countries of Southeast Europe.

The DIANET project was launched in January 2006, with the support of the European Commission’s CARDS Regional Programme. Its objectives are to improve advocacy skills at local, national and regional levels through an established network of civil society organisations in Albania, Bulgaria, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Romania and Serbia and Montenegro.

This web site represents the main hub of the DIANET network and will ensure a constant source of advice and information to all CSOs involved. As well as providing up-to-date information on minority rights (existing legal frameworks, reports on the situation of minorities and existing practices in the countries in the region), the website will also encourage the transfer of knowledge and know-how through training and capacity building tools and practical cases produced by the project partners as well as the latest news about their work.
