Compensation Now: Campaign on Coerced Sterilisation

3 July 2008

This section of the ERRC’s website contains relevant information and links related to the coerced sterilisation of Romani women in Central Europe. Materials for this section have been prepared around a lobbying campaign commencing on 3 July by the Ostrava-based Group of Women Harmed by Sterilisation, the ERRC and the Peacework Development Fund at the 2008 Women’s Worlds Congress in Madrid, Spain. The campaign is supported by the Open Society Institute’s Public Health Program and the Heinrich Boll Stiftung Warsaw. This page includes updates on actions undertaken by the ERRC and in partners, as well as downloadable campaigning materials in English, Spanish, Czech, Hungarian and Slovak (see below).
