ERRC 2003-2004 Biennial Report

30 June 2005

The ERRC 2003-2004 Biennial Report, published in early 2005, includes reports on the ERRC's activities for the two years previous. Noted achievements include:
 

  • Becoming recognised as the major civil society stakeholder shaping Roma related rights-based policy at the European level and authoring the official European Union policy report on Roma.
  • Reshaping European international and domestic law in a number of areas through landmark decisions won in Roma Rights cases.
  • Training a new generation of legal practitioners in anti-discrimination through measures including workshops, close work with attorneys directly on cases, and other actions.
  • Intensifying work in the area of women's rights through training workshops and research into women's rights issues and by compiling our first comprehensive submission focused exclusively on women's rights issues.
  • Breaking new ground in undertaking Roma rights work in the former Soviet Union -- including Russia, Ukraine and the Caucasus.
  • Making significant progress in the matter of school desegregation in Central and Eastern Europe.

Heightening capacity building for Romani individuals and organisations in order to secure Roma inclusion in human rights defense.

Materials are organized thematically, and a series of appendices present comprehensive lists of ERRC scholarship recipients, legal cases undertaken by the ERRC, ERRC publications, and other matters. An introduction by ERRC Acting Executive Director Claude Cahn provides reflections on developments during the period.
