Announcement of Publication
European Roma Rights Centre Biennial Report 2003-2004

Budapest, 4 July 2005. The European Roma Rights Centre (ERRC) announces
publication of its 2003-2004 Biennial Report. The ERRC Biennial Report
2003-2004 includes summary description of the ERRC's activities for the
two years previous. Noted achievements include:

* Becoming recognised as the major civil society stakeholder shaping
Roma-related rights-based policy at the European level, and authoring
the official European Union policy report on Roma.

* Reshaping European domestic law in a number of areas through landmark
decisions won in Roma rights cases.

* Training a new generation of legal practitioners in
anti-discrimination through measures including workshops, close work
with attorneys directly on cases, and other actions.

* Intensifying work in the area of women's rights through training,
research and advocacy before international human rights bodies.

* Breaking new ground in undertaking Roma rights work in the former
Soviet Union - including in particular Russia and Ukraine.

* Through a range of activities, heightening the capacity of Romani
individuals and organisations to secure Roma rights.

Materials are organized thematically, and a series of appendices present
comprehensive lists of ERRC scholarship recipients, legal cases
undertaken by the ERRC, ERRC publications, and other matters. An
introduction by ERRC Acting Executive Director Claude Cahn provides
reflections on developments during the period.

The ERRC Biennial Report 2003-2004 also includes a CD-Rom containing a
selection of ERRC advocacy and legal submissions, key court judgments,
articles by ERRC staff and affiliates, and articles appearing in the
media on ERRC activities.
