ECMI Monograph #4 available

This volume contains the second research reports of the Romani Expert
Groups for Romani Integration. Drawing on extensive background
research and consultation with local stakeholders, four core areas
were distinguished for the purpose of the needs assessment:
Education; Health; Civil rights; and Employment. ECMI thanks
the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency
(Sida) for its generous support. Sida has also provided support for
this initiative from its inception.

As was true of their research in the first project year, the Expert
Groups have chosen topics which have received little attention from
other actors. By conducting their research primarily in Romani
ghettos in the cities throughout Macedonia with the largest Romani
populations, the Expert Groups have focused on various manifestations
of marginalization in need of urgent attention from domestic and
international actors. The resulting reports provide valuable reference
material for the design of measures to promote Roms’ integration into
the society of Macedonia as a whole. ECMI is particularly hopeful
that the material in this volume will be useful in realizing the Strategy
for Roma in the Republic of Macedonia, adopted by the Macedonian
government in early 2005 after incorporating an extensive set of
revisions proposed by the Expert Groups, as well as in making the
Decade of Roma Inclusion a genuine success in the Republic of
Macedonia.
