Working groups of the Barents Euro-Arctic Council

Practical cooperation in the Barents region is promoted by 15 working groups which are classified as intergovernmental (Chairmanship is implemented by representatives of federal and national bodies), regional (the Chair is a region's representative) or joint working groups of the BEAC and BRC representatives.

Working Group on Indigenous Peoples (from 2003 has the status of Permanent Observer in the BEAC) closely cooperates with the BEAC as well as with the Barents Regional Council.
