World Congress

Representative Forum of Finno-Ugric Peoples since 1992.
Through its permanent executive body, the Consultative Committee, the Congress has been represented in the working meetings on indigenous peoples at the United Nations Human Rights Committee.

The purpose of the Congress is to preserve and develop Finno-Ugric peoples and their culture as part of humanity’s global heritage. These days a further development of relations between Finno-Ugric peoples is hampered by political tensions between the Russian Federation and the European Union.

The 8th World Congress of Finno-Ugric Peoples will be held on 16-18 June 2021 in Tartu, in the Estonian National Museum. The organizer of the Congress, NGO Fenno-Ugria, announces that considering the current situation caused by the COVID-19 virus, the VIII World Congress of the Finno-Ugric Peoples will be organized in hybrid form, in-person attendees in Tartu and virtual attendees online.
