How do I register for the Forum?

If you wish to attend this session of the Forum on Minority Issues, please complete the following pieces of documentation as soon as possible and return them to the Secretariat of the Forum on Minority issues (email: minorityforum@ohchr.org fax: (41 22) 917 90 06).

1. The Conference Registration form (check "Other" or "NGO with ECOSOC Status")

2. Accreditation letter: letter on the official letterhead entitling you to represent your organisation, signed by the Head of the organisation and with the full contact details of the organisation.

3. Questionnaire (mandatory for everybody except academia and NGOs with ECOSOC status)
IMPORTANT!! CHECKLIST: Please make sure that you send us all the following documents in the same email:

    • Conference Registration Form
    • Accreditation Letter
    • Questionnaire (if applicable)

How do I know if my registration for the Forum has been processed?

Once the Secretariat of the Forum on Minority issues receives all the above documentation, it will then process your application and confirm your eligibility for participation in this year’s Forum.

What happens after I receive confirmation of my participation?

Once your participation is confirmed by the Secretariat of the Forum on Minority issues, you are encouraged to start making your travel and accommodation arrangements.

How do I enter the Forum’s venue (Palais des Nations)?

All participants (without a UNOG identity badge) should proceed to the accreditation office at the “Pregny Gate” security entrance (8-14 avenue de la Paix – see map).

We strongly advise you to be at the Pregny Gate at least an hour in advance of the meeting. Alternatively, you can also collect your badge the day before the Forum to avoid any delays on the first day.

You need to bring with you:

  • Your passport
  • Your registration form
  • Your accreditation letter

The Accreditation Officer will then issue a photo-badge granting access to the Palais des Nations. This badge will remain valid for the duration of the session, and will permit the badge-holder unrestricted access to the conference rooms.

Please note that failure to send us all required documentation on time will result in undue delay and might prevent you to attend the whole Forum.
