The Minority Map and Timeline of Europe (MMTE) was designed and implemented by:
Forrest Kilimnik (USA)
Following graduation from the joint Erasmus Mundus Master’s Course “Global Studies – A European Perspective” with his detailed thesis titled The War of Laws: South Ossetia’s Movement for Self-Determination Between the Russian and Georgian Fronts, Forrest Kilimnik joined the ECMI regional office in Tbilisi in April 2010. Following his internship, Forrest collaborated with Tom Trier, director of ECMI - Caucasus, and George Tarkhan-Mouravi, co-director of the Institute for Policy Studies in Tbilisi, in writing a monograph on Meskhetian Turks and their planned repatriation to Georgia. From October 2010 onwards, he has reconceptualized and redesigned the Ethnopolitical Map of Europe project as the new interactive Minority Map and Timeline of Europe.
