Romani CRISS, in partnership with the FXB Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard University, ANTIGONE, the European Roma Rights Centre (ERRC), Life Together and Integro Association Bulgaria, is launching the DARE-Net project: Desegregation and Action for Roma in Education-Network.
The DARE-Net project will create a transnational network of Roma and non-Roma civil society and academic organisations to analyse practices and initiatives relating to Roma education and school desegregation of Roma children in Romania, Croatia, Greece, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Bulgaria.
The project seeks to address the issue of school segregation of Roma children. Not only that school segregation is a serious form of discrimination against Roma, and violates the right of equal access to education, but it keeps the Roma population from realising their full potential as equal citizens and potential leaders. Discrimination, social exclusion and poverty dominate the lives of many of the estimated 10 to 12 million Roma living in the European Union and candidate countries today nearly half of whom are children and youths.Read more
