15% of primary school pupils in Hungary are Roma. One out of every three Roma child studies in Roma only class, separated from non Roma in most cases physically.
Chance for Children Foundation works on reducing this number to 0 as children like Márk can only reach their potential through integrated, high quality education. Márk and many of his peers study in the after school program of CFCF.

#HappeningatCEU: Law, Lawyers and Race. Critical Race Theory from the United States to Europe – Book discussion with Mathias Möschel, the author Anti-Roma and anti-Black sentiments, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia constitute a fundamental factor, often tacitly accepted, in the relationship between law and race in Europe. Consequently, the broadly shared anti-race and anti-racist position is problematic because it acts to the detriment of victims of racism while privileging the White, Christian, male majority. Approaching a very sensitive and challenging topic, how law is involved in the construction and subordination of racial and ethnic minorities, the book addresses the existing gap in applying Critical Race Theory to legal studies and Race and Ethnicity, in Europe. Wednesday, 27 May 2015, 10 AM, Nador 11 – room 616 Find out more: http://legal.ceu.edu/events/2015-05-27/book-discussion-law-lawyers-and-race

CEU Roma Access Program - Tue, 05/26/2015 - 3:55pm
Known as Jozsefvaros (Joseph Town), Budapest’s central 8th district is not typically featured in guidebooks. The far side of the neighbourhood has been called the Bronx or Harlem of Budapest, its ethnic mix dominated by Roma but also featuring Turks, Chinese, Arabs, Africans and others in an ever-richer blend.

Aiming to break down prejudices and stereotypes, Roma volunteers from the Uccu Foundation provide tours not just for foreigners but also for Hungarians, especially students who may not know this part of the city. We are proud of Andrea Ignacz, our RGPP student this year, who is one of the tour guides: “We just wanted to show the people how Roma people are living here, the everyday life.”

ERIO European Roma Information Office - Tue, 05/26/2015 - 1:15pm
The EU cohesion policy aims to create jobs, reduce poverty and tackle social exclusion. Unfortunately some member states are using "European Structural and Investment Funds“ for building segregated neighbourhoods for Roma.

Therefore, the European Ombudsman, Emily O'Reilly, has made eight proposals to the European Commission to help it ensure that these funds do not support Member State cohesion programmes that breach fundamental rights.

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".
