Conferinta regionala despre romi si discriminare

The Regional conference on Roma and discrimination will look constructively and also critically to the last 25 years of Roma public policy and programming and challenges for the future. The event will bring together a diversity of actors involved in the area - civil society organizations implementing projects in the Roma field,  NGO Fund Programme Operators, representatives of European institutions (European Commission, European Parliament, Council of Europe), experts and researchers in antidiscrimination, public policy, NGO development, alongside funding organizations in Central and Eastern Europe.

We aim to provide a framework suitable for exchanging views and good practices of Roma and non-Roma organisations which are active in the policy influencing and in addressing community problems, as well as to identify areas towards which policy makers and donors should direct their actions in the upcoming years.

Subsequent sessions are designed to debate public policy issues, the active participation of the Roma, Roma youth development, discrimination, participation of Roma women, migration, issues tackling education, health, employment and housing for the Roma. National and local perspectives from Romania, Hungary, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Bulgaria will be in particular highlighted during the presentations.

The Conference is organized by the Resource Center for Roma Communities in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, with financial support from the NGO Fund of the EEA Grants and Norway Grants.
