In last few decades a very active and solidary working relationship has developed between the Danish and German minorities within their border region. SSF and Bund Deutscher Nordschleswiger have a tight dialog and together they tackle issues which concern both minorities.
Since 2004 all four minorities in the region– the Danish- the Frisian-, Siniti and Roma- and the German minority work together with the majority population in what is called “DialogForumNorden”. In this forum minorityrepresentatives, politicians, institutes, organizations and committees jointly discuss minority issues. The chairman of this forum is the current Schleswig-Holstein minority commissioner. The Danish minority is represented through the SSF and SSW.
The minority is also strongly represented in the committee for the Danish-German “Region Sønderjylland-Schleswig.”
