RARC is a member of the Slovak Committee for the Prevention and Elimination of Racism

Zuzana Havirova as a representative of ERGO member Roma Advocacy and Research Centre (RARC) recently became a member of the Slovak Committee for the Prevention and Elimination of Racism, Xenophobia, Antisemitism and other forms of Intolerance. The Committee belongs to the Ministry of Interior of the Slovak Republic.

The Committee is the only advisory body of the Government of the Slovak Republic that specifically addresses the prevention and elimination of racism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism and other forms of intolerance in society.

The Committee’s main ambition is to be a platform for coordinating activities, defining priorities and guidelines for the development of public policies aimed at the prevention and elimination of racism, xenophobia and extremism. At the same time, the Committee is an appropriate tool for the exchange of information between representatives of the public administration, the self-government and civil society, which will help to solve the issues within the Committee’s material scope.
