Roma Youth Empowerment for Active Citizenship: Empowerment and challenging antigypsyism through non-formal education
Download: Educational Toolkit
The educational toolkit “Roma Youth Empowerment for Active Citizenship” offers various tools and approaches for non-formal educational work on empowerment of young Roma and non-Roma adults, as well as educational methods in order to challenge stereotypes and antigypsyism in Europe. The toolkit raises key issues such as the concept of antigypsyism, history and narratives about Roma, migration issues, and the challenge of comic books for Roma people. Moreover, it provides several educational activities to challenge antigypsyism, for instance a resource-based workshop on Roma history narratives, a role-play of a stakeholders’ conference on the migration issue, and a discussion on minority strategies based on the X-Men comics/movie drawing parallels to Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X in the U.S. civil rights movement.
