European Roma Institute will spread understanding of Roma culture and challenge stereotypes
Council of Europe member States have approved a proposal for the creation of a new European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture. Council of Europe Secretary General Jagland issued the following statement:
“The European Roma Institute for Arts and Culture will spread greater understanding of Roma culture and challenge unhelpful stereotypes. I hope that over time it will become a source of pride and self-esteem for our European Roma citizens.”
“The project will be Roma-led, with the Council of Europe and the Open Society Foundations providing funding, resources and political support”.
