International Promotion of Roma Culture at Marseille Conference

Council of Europe

On 30-31 October in Marseille (France), the Alliance together with the European Institute of Cultural Routes and the Region Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Region (PACA) co-organised an international conference under the general label of promoting and networking for the European dimension of Roma culture.

This was to raise awareness of Roma culture and to examine the problems of discrimination and gypsism past and present. The conference was to show how culture, in its various aspects, could help Roma and non-Roma communities to live in harmony within local and regional communities and enrich their differences. The conference presented the projects and initiatives of Croatia, Germany, Hungary and Switzerland. Reflection also focused on the importance of recognizing and commemorating the genocide of Roma during the Second World War.
