Valery Novoselsky

From The Executive Editor On The Occasion Of 15th Anniversary Of Roma Virtual Network Roma Virtual Network (RVN) was launched on 19 July 1999 by it`s current executive editor Valery Novoselsky, a person from a Romani background who was born in Ukraine, but resides in Israel. This network was established and keeps working thanks to initial support of Romani activists, such as Ian Hancock (USA), Viktória Mohácsi (Hungary), Amoun Sleem (Israel), Dragan Jevremovic (Austria) and Emil Scuka (Czech Republic). This initiative had been initially supported by the small group of Roma who immigrated to Israel from the countries of ex-USSR as the members of mixed Romani-Jewish families. Shortly the initiative gained the recognition of many national and international, governmental and non-governmental organizations dealing with Roma issues, especially in Europe. One of the reasons for such recognition is the fact that RVN started to address the need of Roma and Roma-friendly audience in timely and non-biased information on Roma issues. Since the very beginning this public media initiative did it`s best in turning the chaotic and biased Internet into Roma-friendly sphere. Fifteen years of ongoing activity of RVN proved this initiative to be very important for the progress of all Roma, and especially for the emerging strata of young Roma leaders and public diplomats, some of whom are working on international level and in national governmental institutions. RVN also serves as a source of comprehensive and up-to-date information on the variety of topics and aspects connected to the Roma issue (education, employment, housing, equality, women rights, anti-trafficking, Romani language, cultural life, etc.) for policy-makers, civil servants and human rights activists living across the globe. RVN contains a reliable electronic archive of Roma-related news items posted on-line since October 2001. RVN also has 33 electronic mailing lists in 20 languages (including Romani) with a total membership of over 11 800 email addresses. This Roma media source also has the Roma news webpage on http://roma.idebate.org/, Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook accounts on https://twitter.com/RomaBuzzMonitor, http://www.linkedin.com/in/romavirtualnetwork and http://www.facebook.com/roma.virtual.network updated regularly solely with Roma news items.
