The Roma project works with Roma to achieve full human rights for Roma in Ireland. This involves Roma, Travellers and non-Roma working in solidarity to ensure that Roma are included in Irish society. Find out more about Roma. All photos by Derek Speirs.
We are working for the realisation of Roma human rights in Ireland through policy change. We work to influence policy development
• for an overall strategy for Roma inclusion;
• to address high levels of poverty; and
• for the collection of quality information and data on Roma in Ireland, within a human rights framework.
We work with Roma to highlight issues facing the community and to work for social justice. Supporting Roma leadership and voices is a key part of our work. We do this through training and organisation of events to highlight Roma issues. At the moment Roma from across Ireland are working with us as peer researchers in the first Government supported national needs assessment of Roma in Ireland.
We work to challenge negative stereotypes about Roma. One of the ways we do this is through the photo exhibition “Roma: One People – Many Lives”. The exhibition provides a unique opportunity to see images of Roma people who live, study and work in Ireland. This exhibition, developed in collaboration with members of the Roma community, aims to challenge perceptions and stereotypes about Roma.

Celebrating Roma Culture & History
Each year we celebrate International Roma Day on the 8th of April. This gives us a chance to remind ourselves of the Roma contribution to culture and diversity. Part of our work is also to commemorate Roma history and on the 2nd of August we commemorate Roma Holocaust Memorial Day.
