For greater participation of Roma in political processes in Serbia

Answering the call of the OSCE Mission, BFPE has started a series of five workshops in Central Serbia, with the goal to increase the participation of our fellow citizens Roma in political processes and consequently, their inclusion in(to) our society.

For quite some time BFPE has warned, with OSCE recognizing that voice of Roma is not heard enough, partly because they are underrepresented, and partly because they are socially “excluded”.

These workshops will be attended by both representatives of CSOs advocating rights of Roma, as well as representatives of local administration who are directly involved in dealing with issues of social inclusion.

Our first “stops” this week were cities of Niš and Kragujevac.

Workshops are implemented with the support of the OSCE Mission to Serbia.
