National seminar on Roma inclusion at the local level in Lithuania

First national seminar of the Roma Alliance in Lithuania

CoE; Serbian national seminar in June 2015

We are pleased to announce our first national seminar on Roma inclusion on the local level in Lithuania on Thursday, 17 December 2015 in Trakai, 30km away from the capital Vilnius.

The seminar will bring together representatives of Alliance participants with other municipalities and regions, NGOs and national authorities to discuss the role of local and regional authorities in Roma inclusion.

Earlier seminars of this kind have led to the creation of informal networks amongst the participants to facilitate the struggle for inclusion.
