Central and Eastern Europe’s Roma are one of the region’s poorest and most vulnerable groups. PartnersGlobal supports and recognizes the importance of integration rather than the assimilation of ethnic groups into society. In partnership with Partners Hungary, formerly Partners Czech, and Partners Slovakia, launched the Roma Integration Program in the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Slovakia.
In each of the target communities, we established inter-ethnic Conciliation Commissions, which recognize local diversity and mediate community disputes. Trained in effective communication, mediation and conflict resolution methodologies, the commissions work the resolve disputes and promote inter-ethnic tolerance.
