Judit Ignácz

25 August 2016

Judit Ignácz obtained her BA degree in French and Romology in Pécs, Hungary. She was a part of Roma English Language Program and Roma Graduate Preparation Program at CEU where she specialized in Public Policy. She will continue her studies as a student of Master of Public Administration starting in September at the CEU School of Public Policy in Budapest.

She was an intern at Roma Education Fund and she also did her voluntary service at Phiren Amenca International Network, where later on she became a board member.  

Judit considers ERRC the perfect place to do an internship because it allows her to learn more about human rights abuses and broaden her knowledge analyzing European policies related to Romani people.

Judit considers it vitally important to fight against inequalities towards Romani people and to do justice to them. Her constant individual experiences of discrimination and racism also motivated her to work to fight discrimination against Romani people.
