Founding Principles

Founding Principles

ERIAC’s vision is grounded in six founding principles, which will define the Institute’s establishment, core functions, governance, structure and membership:

  • Respect of the dignity of Romani people and Romani identity
  • Diversity and plurality of Romani identities and cultures
  • Romani leadership with the support and co-operation of non-Roma
  • Engagement and contribution of Romani organizations and individuals in the establishment and ongoing activities of the Institute
  • Political autonomy and non-partisanship, openness for collaboration with public authorities and political institutions as partners
  • Highest quality standards in the domains of arts and culture, as well in as its own operational performance.
