Protecting the Rights of Roma

24 November 2011

In an effort to combat the marginalisation of the Roma people and to contribute to their full integration into society, the Council of Europe has published factsheets 'Protecting the Rights of Roma'.

In an effort to combat the marginalisation of the Roma people and to contribute to their full integration into society, the Council of Europe has published factsheets 'Protecting the Rights of Roma'.

Knowledge about the history and culture of the Roma nation, which numerically is the largest minority in Europe, is still very low. The factsheets aim at filling this gap in order to bring the different cultures closer together.
Key to the process of integration is the education of both Roma and non-Roma.
Section 3 is devoted to Romani, the language spoken by the Roma, which is included in the list of languages protected by the Council of Europe’s European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages.

In 2010 and 2011 the European Centre for Modern Languages (ECML) provided specialised support for the activity “ENHANCING ROMANI LANGUAGE EDUCATION IN SCHOOLS IN EUROPE (QUALIROM)” aiming to respond to the need for quality provision in Romani language, given the crucial importance of the issue of Roma education throughout Europe – especially amidst continued discrimination against the Roma and Traveller communities – and in the context of the Council of Europe’s comprehensive approach to Roma and Traveller issues.
