Visegrad Fund – Patterns of spatial and ethnic inequalities in Slovakia, Czech Republic and Hungary

RCERS HAS CNHRD as a lead partner with its Slovakian and Czech partners will organise two workshops in March and May 2012 on Patterns of spatial and ethnic inequalities in Slovakia, Czech Republic and Hungary. The project is funded by the Visegrad Fund.


Aim of the project

In all three states participating in the application the number of Roma population is considerable, at the same time significant differences can be detected in terms of the spatial (rural-urban) and social positions (extent of poverty, educational background, spatial and social segregation) of the Roma people. The objective of the project is that the researchers, policy makers, experts of the various states shall get acquainted with one another’s work and achievements, and to establish the theoretical framework of thinking about Roma people and to present good practices against social exclusion, development opportunities, in this way creating the foundation of future research suitable for relevant comparison of the countries. In the framework of the project we plan to organise two workshops.
