Training Courses for Roma

The ERRC conducts numerous training workshops each year to increase and strengthen the core of Romani activists working to promote equality for Roma in Europe. ERRC training programmes also aim to capacitate Roma to engage in joint action with the ERRC. Our 10-day Roma Rights Summer School for Romani activists is the principal training programme of the ERRC, having hosted hundreds of Romani activists throughout the years who are now acting as important advocates on behalf of their communities. The ERRC also hosts numerous smaller targeted programmes each year, depending on funding and interests.
