Abstract: 
A uniformly recurrent subgroup is a closed minimal invariant subset in the Chabauty space of a group. After explaining the relationship between uniformly recurrent subgroups and stabilisers of minimal actions on compact spaces, I will illustrate some examples in which a lack of uniformly recurrent subgroups leads to rigidity phenomena for non-free minimal actions.   (Joint works with Adrien Le Boudec and Todor Tsankov)
