The Swedish IHRA Presidency is organizing an international conference in Stockholm on 20-21 October 2022. One objective of
the conference is to take stock of existing research on the genocide of the Roma, and to identify obstacles, gaps, and needs, as well as share IHRA knowledge and recommendations, stimulate cooperation, and proactively work together for impact. The conference also aims to highlight developments in research on how the genocide of the Roma is linked to the prejudice and discrimination that many Roma face today. Topics for discussion include historical perspectives on antigypsyism and the genocide of the Roma in the Nordic, issues concerning testimonies and recognition, and how education can contribute to combating antigypsyism today.
There is an option to join the event online via zoom.
