CEU Roma Access Program - Fri, 05/22/2015 - 7:04pm

Chronik-Fotos
How much do we actually know about the recent history of the Romani movement in Europe? Food for thought: some names to research this weekend. Our students, from both RGPP and RELP, had the chance to meet @[100002056717834:2048:Nicoleta Bitu], last Friday, in a conversation about a Romani feminist path at intersections of Romani and feminists movements, at @[36511036382:274:Central European University]. Roma Access Programs regularly invites experts - academics, students and policy makers - to hold talks on history, art, economy, public policy and politics in the framework of "Roma in Europe: Seminars on Socio-cultural, Political and Policy issues".

RAP in the International Media

"CEU began its Roma Access Programs (RAP), which includes the Roma Graduate Preparation Program, to empower Roma to respond to such ignorance and racism. In operation since 2004, the prep program differs from others in that it specifically serves as a bridge to graduate study, in English, essentially fast-tracking a generation of Roma leadership. A newer program is intended to get English up to the graduate level."

Even though Norway is considered as a country with strong principles of equality and non-discrimination, Roma are still subjects of discrimination and intolerance with a long historical dimension.

Last Monday’s Toronto Star described the Law Society’s five-month suspension for a negligent lawyer who failed to represent large numbers of refugee claimants as a ‘slap on the wrist.’ Many victims of his systemic misconduct were Hungarian Roma. In this article, Geneviève Ryan explains how, even if Roma have competent legal representation, the immigration system has become stacked against them; and how prejudiced public debate has framed them as ‘bogus refugees’

EU funds and Human Rights must go hand in hand!

“The European Commission should not allow itself to finance, with EU money, actions which are not in line with the highest values of the Union, that is to say, the rights, freedoms and principles recognized by the Charter”, concluded the European Ombudsman in a recent decision. The European Ombudsman made it clear that the European Commission must ensure greater compliance with European fundamental rights law concerning Member States’ spending of EU funds.

European Roma Rights Centre and a local Italian organisation, Associazione 21 luglio, contributed to this process by outlining the weaknesses and concerns that emerged from the misspending of money under the EU Cohesion Fund in Italy. The Naples Municipality had planned to build a segregated neighborhood for the #Romani community from the EU earmarked money. After civil society organisations provided information to the European Commission the proposed build has been halted.

The Ombudsman’s guidelines for improvement reflect the particular asks of ERRC, including, creating a clear and transparent framework in which civil society can contribute to the Commission's supervisory role, in addition to the existing working and expert groups and committees.
