CALL FOR CANDIDATURES FOR THE AWARD FOR ROMA INTEGRATION IN THE WESTERN BALKANS AND TURKEY
With the Award for Roma Integration, the European Commission wishes to honour the commitment of civil society organisations in assisting the integration of Roma communities across the Western Balkans and Turkey, and to give visibility to best practices and ideas.
The winning projects will have to demonstrate an original approach, offering holistic, sustainable solutions for overcoming the existing social gaps between the majority communities and the Roma population. Applications are accepted from EU and non-EU funded projects as well as non-funded initiatives.
Civil society organisations from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Serbia, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Turkey and Kosovo may apply.
The best project from each country will be awarded with a prize of €14,000. The winners together with the 2nd and 3rd placed from each country will be invited for a study visit to Brussels.
