Romani Week 2022 / Romano Kurko 2022

ERGO Network is proud to be once again a key partner of the annual Romani Week! This year it will take place both online and in-person in Brussels, Belgium.

Romani Week 2022 will be organised from 16th to 19th of May 2022. It aims to build on the work done during previous Romani Weeks and will debate EU policies for Romani inclusion. It will call upon the European Commission and EU Member States to put the fight against antigypsyism at the forefront of efforts for the social and economic inclusion of Romani people.

Policymakers, experts, activists, and organisations concerned with persistent antigypsyism in Europe cooperate to organise the Romani Week. The week will consist of a series of events that will provide recommendations on combatting antigypsyism, including the Roma in the digital and green agendas, paying special attention to the challenges of Roma women and youth, and representation of the local communities and Romani language.
