Institute for Research in Social Communication, SAS received a grant from the European Commission for the project entitled “Identifying evidence-based methods to effectively combat discrimination of the Roma in the changing political climate of Europe ”. The two-year research project will be carried out by a consortium of five European universities and research institutions in close collaboration with civil partners, national and European level stakeholders between 2018 and 2020.
The aim of the project is to identify the effects of political discourse on antigypsyism, and prosocial and antisocial action intentions toward Roma people and Travellers, and to evaluate and improve anti-discrimination interventions. The findings of the project will be used to create a toolkit for designing interventions, and disseminate country level and integrated reports to inform local and EU level policy makers, practitioners, NGOs, academic researchers as well as the general public.
The project budget is 430 thousand euros, 80% of which is financed by the EU. The consortium is led by Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest in partnership with University of Limerick, Université Paris-Nanterre, Slovak Academy of Sciences, and University of Iasi.
We thank to all the national and European policy makers and NGO representatives that contributed to our kick-off meeting in Budapest on November 16-17, 2018.
