Civic participation

ERGO Network and its members promote a culture of self-determination and active participation in the public domain – as individuals and collectively. We resist paternalism and tokenism and encourage critical reflection and an assertive attitude.

Strengthening Roma civil society participation in decision-making at grassroots, national and European level is a key part of ERGO Network’s mission. We do so by bringing Roma voices from the grassroots to the EU level, by empowering national Roma civil society organisations to become stronger, to build coalitions and effectively advocate for Roma on the national level, and by building the knowledge, skills and confidence of young Roma activists.
