International Roma Day
8th April marked International Roma Day. To mark the occasion, Olga Fuseini organised an exhibition of Roma culture and history at Clifton Learning Partnership and Lois Orton was an invited panellist at the 11th Annual Roma Conference ‘Legacies and Manifestations of Anti-Roma Racism in Health Policies, Practice and Research’ which took place at Harvard’s FXB Center for Health and Human Rights.

Animation: Resisting Complicity with Oppression of Roma people
This video was created in collaboration by various members of the project leadership team and advisory board.
Based on our personal experiences in conducting research with and for Roma it opens up discussion about how those non-Roma (Gadje) scholars among us can better resist complicity with oppression of Roma people.
It is intended to encourage discussion. We welcome any feedback.
For a more detailed discussion of these issues, please see our accompanying paper 'Researching the health and social inequalities experienced by European Roma populations: Complicity, oppression and resistance.'
On 12 October we held a celebration with food, music and dancing to thank the local Roma community of Eastwood for supporting our research project over the last 6 months.
