How Can State Institutions Help Overcome Anti-Gypsyism in Europe?

Promoted content

On December 1, 2015, the German Federal Foreign Office hosted the first international symposium on anti-Gypsyism in Berlin.

The debates, conferences and workshops emphasized that anti-Gypsyism is the major obstacle to the socio-economic advancement of Roma in Europe today. Combatting anti-Gypsyism is about advocating for inclusive institutions and fair public services rather than tackling individual anti-Roma sentiment in isolation.

The event was held with the support of Michael Roth MP, Minister of State for Europe at the German Federal Foreign Office, and was co-hosted by the Open Society Foundations, the Schwarzkopf Stiftung Young Europe and the Documentation and Cultural Centre of German Sinti and Roma.
