The Bureau of the Congress with the SRSG for Roma Issues

The Presidents of the Congress with the SRSG for Roma issues

At its meeting on 1 and 2 December 2016, the Bureau of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe invited the Special Representative of the Secretary General for Roma Issues, Mr. Valeriu Nicolae, to present his efforts together with UEFA to fight racism and violence against women. The campaign also specifically tackles anti-Gypsyism as a specific form of racism, and aims at its recognition as such.

"Dosta!" means "enough!" in the variation of Romani that is prevalent in the Western Balkans.
