Results of the project
A wide scale campaign was started and challenged the stigmatization and prejudiced stereotyping as root causes for the social exclusion of the Roma.
A competition was launched among municipalities with regard to the Roma inclusion, in which 7 municipalities participated.
The participating organisations carried out a variety of other awareness-raising activities in their countries, including establishing temporary `Inclusion zones`, where the Roma and non-Roma met and discussed about stereotypes.
The participating NGOs also collected stories for a so-called Black & White book, which was presented during the Roma Summit in Córdoba. The book presents the stories of successful and failed Roma integration.
