ERIACNET4EU: ERIAC NETWORK TO ADVANCE ROMA INCLUSION BY COMBATTING AND PREVENTING ANTIGYPSYISM IN THE EU

#ERIACNET4EU

 

In the frame of the Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values Programme (CERV) of the European Union, ERIAC is launching a new project: ERIACNET4EU: ERIAC NETWORK TO ADVANCE ROMA INCLUSION BY COMBATTING AND PREVENTING ANTIGYPSYISM IN THE EU.

 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

With the adoption of the new EU Roma Framework, the EU and its member states move towards implementation where expert advice as well as reliable partners on all levels of policy-making and implementation (local, regional, national, European) are needed.

ERIACNET4EU project will offer the expertise, specific know-how and reliable methodologies to support the implementation of the new framework.

ERIACNET4EU project aims at protecting, promoting and raising awareness of rights of Roma citizens of the EU and thereby at strengthening the EU values, in particular of equality, justice and non-discrimination and thus contributing to building a more democratic EU where all citizens can enjoy equal access and protection of their rights. It aims to do so by providing support to ERIAC network members, including civil society organizations active at local, regional and transnational level, to increase their capacities, establish channels of communication and participation with public authorities and EU institutions to ensure their active engagement in policy implementation and design targeting Roma. At the same time, it will result in providing informed, reliable, consolidated and quality input to European and national policy-makers and public institutions, to increase the effective implementation of strategies and laws that affect the lives of Roma in the EU.

 

ERIACNET4EU serves the following objectives:

  1. Ensure quality input to policy-making and policy-implementation at local, regional, national and EU levels through mutual learning and exchange of good practices among/ between ERIAC members as well as with other public and private stakeholders
  2. Awareness raising, information and dissemination activities
  3. Increasing capacities and knowledge-base of members and other stakeholders through training activities
  4. Growing the network and community outreach

V. GENERAL ASSEMBLY 

Date: December 8-9, 2022
Location: Berlin (hybrid event)
Topic: V. General Assembly Meeting of ERIAC Members and Annual Networking Event

On December 8-9, 2022, the European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture (ERIAC) held its V General Assembly meeting, which took place in a hybrid form – physically in ERIAC Office, Berlin and online via ZOOM. For this meeting, all ERIAC statutory bodies, including ERIAC Board members, ERIAC Barvalipe Academy members, ERIAC associate members, and the ERIAC staff came together. for the nourishing ritual of reflection and hatching new plans. The meeting was envisioned as a two-day-long respite, a dwelling where our community could flourish and collectively celebrate Roma people’s labor, creativity, and intellect.

On December 9, we closed the Assembly with a vernissage of the exhibition Woman to Woman showcasing works of Małgorzata Mirga-Tas and Eugen Raportoru. Presenting the works of artists who stole the hearts of art connoisseurs from all over the world at the 59th International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia, was the best way to close what we started to call the Golden Year of Romani Arts. The in-person attendees were also able to enjoy the party with live music featuring The Pillers, Gipsy Groove and Dj Nomi.

 

Agenda of the V. General Assembly 

 

 

 

ROMA(NI) PAST – EUROPE’S FUTURE. WHY EMBRACING EU’S LARGEST ETHNIC MINORITY MATTERS 

Date: October 14, 2022
Time: 10.00 – 17.00 (CET), ZOOM
Topic: Online course on Romani culture

Roma have been part of the European and national histories and cultural landscapes for at least 700 years. Today, Roma constitute the largest ethnic minority in Europe with some 10 million citizens, and a global diaspora of over 15 million people. Yet despite the centuries-old presence, Roma remain largely unknown to majority societies. As a people, Roma are mostly thought of and treated as a social problem, perceived through the prism of marginalization, exclusion and poverty. Moreover, Roma today are the most stigmatized and discriminated minority in the EU; diverse manifestations of antigypsyism – the specific form of racism against Roma people – are a regrettable feature of daily lives of Roma in Europe. On the other hand, however, Roma remain a highly resilient and creative population whose diverse contributions to European social, cultural, economic, political, artistic, and even linguistic fields are yet to be acknowledged and embraced.

This online course provided a brief overview of Roma history and culture as a point of departure to reflect on the social, political, cultural, economic and environmental importance of positioning Roma at the core of EU’s public debates regarding our societal futures. The course explored the difficult, sensitive or contentious issues related to Roma and antigypsyism, and help identify and incorporate human rights concerns into the work of public officers at local, regional, national or EU level. 

Trainers: Zeljko Jovanovic, Timea Junghaus, Dr Adrian R. Marsh, Isabela Mihalache, Dr Anna Mirga-Kruszelnicka, Dr Iulius Rostas. 
Moderator: Dr Ioaninda Costache.
