The European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI) updated recently its Romani programme website:
Now available on the site is extensive information about the integrated analysis funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA) and carried out by ECMI with Roms in the Union of Serbia and Montenegro in fall 2004. Among the highlights of this section of the website is the possibility of downloading the narrative report from the analysis, as well as a database of 81 active local Romani NGOs in the Union's two republics. Versions of this section in Serbian and International Romani are currently in preparation.

Visitors to the Romani programme website can also find details - in English, Macedonian, and International Romani - of ECMI's ongoing SIDA-funded follow-on to its fall 2003 needs assessment in Macedonia. Building on the findings of the needs assessment, this project has established all-Romani Expert Groups in the areas of education, health, civil rights and employment. The Expert Groups design and conduct research which they deem important as a foundation for concrete policy measures to remedy Roms' comparative disadvantage in these four core areas.

A third section of the Romani programme website focuses on the needs assessment funded by Sida and carried out by ECMI with Roms in the Republic of Macedonia in fall 2003. Available in English, Macedonian, and International Romani, this section offers the needs assessment report as a free download.

ECMI conducts practice-oriented research, provides information and documentation, and offers advisory services concerning minority-majority relations in Europe. It serves European governments and regional intergovernmental organizations as well as non-dominant groups in the European area. The Centre also supports the academic community, the media and the general public through the timely provision of information and analysis. The early monitoring, study and resolution of ethnic tension and potential conflict in all regions of Europe - East and West - provides one of the major focal points for the activities of the Centre. More information on ECMI can be found at
