Dear colleagues,
this November the book on political participation of Roma has been
prepared for publication. This book focuses on a new policy framework
and is being published with the intention of encouraging a greater
understanding for the right of the Roma to participate to a greater
extent than in the past in the decision-making processes affecting them
as well as in realizing the programs based on these decisions and
controlling them. In other words, the book addresses a policy for the
Roma, meaning one that is legitimated with and by the Roma, one that is
formulated and put into practice by them, one that is devised in light
of the political actors involved and rooted in those who represent them. 
For your information the content and the foreword of a publication in
English and German languages sent to you in the attachments. The book
will be distibuted free of charge to interested individuals. Preference
is given to people active in Roma and political non-Roma organisations. 
Interested to receive a free copy should send the request by e-mail to
