The road towards Roma integration goes through education


An initiative to address the specificities of an inclusive education and move beyond stereotypes

in Greece, Roma communities live in conditions of extreme marginalization, social exclusion, poverty and discrimination. Their integration into society remains a protracted and unresolved challenge.
To address the specific need of Roma students for educational social inclusion by presenting a model of democratic and inclusive school development which is based on human rights principles and guidelines for intercultural learning.
