This year’s Roma Network Meeting will be hosted in Novi Sad, Serbia by our member the Ecumenical Humanitarian Organisation (EHO) from 18 – 20 September 2019. This three-day event is organised in cooperation with our partners the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and Swiss Church Aid HEKS/EPER. Together we will explore and discuss challenges and promising practices for the inclusion of Roma and strengthen our existing network of faith-based organisations working on Roma inclusion. Across Europe, Roma have limited opportunities to participate in political life and in society. Addressing the exclusion and discrimination against Roma requires policy changes, but also empowerment, capacity building and participation of Roma and civil society organisations working with Roma in decision making. For this reason, the Joint Roma Network Meeting will focus on practices that increase Roma participation and representation in civil society and diaconal work as well as in political decision-making processes. The event will include presentations from experts and policymakers, group discussions as well as presentations from members and study visits to local Roma inclusion projects. Please have a look at the invitation and draft agenda and register through the online registration form by the 16th of August.
