YEAs in Albania meet Roma youth

An event organised as part of International Roma Day included ten Young European Ambassadors and ten young people from the Roma community in Albania. With Tirana the European Youth Capital in 2022, the purpose of the meeting was to bring attention to Roma youth who are studying and contributing to the community in Albania.


Discussion focused on daily challenges and the way young Roma deal with them in Albania. Other topics included the work that has been done to improve the access of Roma people to basic rights, education and employment. It was concluded that although there have been improvements in terms of Roma integration and the protection of human rights, there is still a lot to do and the challenges remain real.


Finally, the participants discussed and agreed on future cooperation on the further empowerment of Roma youth in Albania.
