A Non-Governmental Organisation in Formal Consultative Relations with UNESCO
The Study Group focuses on music and minorities by means of research, documentation and interdisciplinary study. It serves as a forum for cooperation among scholars through meetings, publications and correspondence.
Definition of the term minority
Minorities are groups of people distinguishable from the dominant group for cultural, ethnic, social, religious, or economic reasons.
The ICTM Study Group on Music and Minorities has regularly held meetings and was able to publish the results regularly as well. The Study Group meeting which is the subject of this publication was held in Hanoi/Vietnam from 19 to 24 July 2010, and was a joint meeting with the Study Group on Applied Ethnomusicology. It was the 6th meeting of our Study Group and the first outside Europe, which was meant to add to the quality of international cooperation and additionally to benefit ethnomusicology and minority research in the region itself.
