Caritas Eparchial Oradea Association together with the
Greek-Catholic Bishopry of Oradea,
under the high patronage of the
Catholic Bishops' Conference of Romania,
with primary support from Renovabis
are pleased to invite you to the international conference on
Roma Migration – dilemas and perspectives of the European Union
Period: 18- 20 February 2015
Place: Oradea, Romania
Context and motivation
Migration is a complex issue and it is Roma migration, in fact, that launched the whole process of sustained attention to the issue of Roma exclusion in the European Union.
At present, the Roma migration represents, for European developed countries, a challenge and a dilema in the same time, which requires urgent answers and viable solutions.
Reasons, chosen destinations, migrants’ profiles, social and economic impact, integration, myths and realities, perspectives from several points of view. Approaches and solutions – did they work, so far? Do they need improvement or change?
Representatives of national governmental institutions, of European institutions active in this specific field, of civil society and of different representatives of Roma organisations from Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Italy, UK, Slovakia, Spain and Romania will be invited to attend this conference and work together on finding the ways to better adress this very actual and, in the same time, challenging issue.
The event is planned to be highly interactive and self organising, providing a frame for sharing, thinking and learning together.
There will be opportunities to share project experiences [successfull or not], questions and best practices. Participants are expected to build new connections and think together about burning issues around Roma migration and plan future actions together.
As part of the conference programme there will be also organised a visit to a local Roma community living in a village [70 km far from Oradea] where Caritas Eparhial Oradea runs a day center for Roma children, aimed at preventing school abandonment amongst these children who are coming from a very poor background.
The organizers intend to formulate a closing statement addressed to international policy makers to raise awareness about the long term risks of Roma migration
The official invitation, event agenda, registration form and all additional information important to be known by the participants will be sent to them until December 1st, 2014.
Deadline for submitting the registration form, filled in, is December 15th , 2014.
Considering the limited number of participants at this event, the organisers expect to receive the registration form as quickly as possible and in due time.
Until December 20th, 2014, those registered will receive from the organisers, the confirmation for the participation in the conference.
