Today, representatives of different ethnic groups live in Azerbaijan. The state guarantees all national minorities the opportunity to preserve, develop and strengthen their cultural heritage.

The multinationality and multiculturalism of Azerbaijan is our common heritage, we must preserve it and present it to the world at the proper level. A project implemented by the Center for Effective Initiatives (CEI) public association with financial assistance from the Council of State Support for NGOs under the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan also serves this cause. Within the framework of the project, an electronic collection “Cultural Diversity - National Wealth” was prepared in three (Azerbaijani, Russian and English) languages ​​and posted on azerbaycanli.org - an electronic resource of the CEI.

The project is intended to contribute to informing the world community about the traditions of multiculturalism in Azerbaijan, about state policy and measures being taken to preserve and increase the cultural heritage of national minorities and ethnic groups living in our country.
