Call for applications : Roma Rights Workshop

Humanity in Action France is pleased to invite you to a week-long workshop for EU civil society members : "Five years into the Decade for Roma Inclusion, what do Europeans know about their Roma minorities?"

The workshop will be held in Lyon, France and run from February 27 through March 6, 2011. This program is sponsored by the Gruntvig EU Lifelong Learning Programme.

The workshop will attempt to evaluate the general knowledge about Roma populations in Europe today; provide participants with knowledge on the history and cultures of Roma populations across Europe; and address the diversity of contemporary issues faced by Roma populations across Europe, as well as the divide between the cultural approaches and the social and humanitarian approaches developed to respond to these issues. Finally, the participants will develop an educational tool designed to help European Civil Society gain knowledge on Roma populations and fight prejudices leading to discrimination and exclusion all over the European Union, beyond the countries included in the Decade for Roma Inclusion.

The application deadline is January 10, 2011.
