DECLARATION OF SUPPORT FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF EUROPEAN ROMA INSTITUTE

We, the members of the National Coalition "Intellect" - Bulgaria, express our support for the establishment of European Roma Institute - a joint initiative of the Council of Europe, the Open Society Foundations and Roma organizations because we expect it to ensure:

  1. Roma to take the leading role in determining who we are. For centuries our image has been formed under the powerful influence of historically shaped stereotypes and prejudices. Unfortunately, due to the wrongly addressed issues of our community, all these stereotypes and prejudices have intentionally or unintentionally been reinforced nowadays. It is time we, the Roma, to take responsibility for our image and lives.
  2. Policies and approaches that generate respect to our dignity and our Romani identity. Roma community has been still perceived by outside observers as a rigid homogenous group with strictly determinate cultural and social dimensions without considering the complex internal dynamics and heterogeneity of the community. For decades the emphasis in integration policies have been placed on overcoming the marginalization caused by poverty and structural inequalities and all proposed and implemented policies were for the poor of all Roma, which enhances internalized discrimination and makes futile any attempts to address structural discrimination. It is time to create conditions not only for poverty alleviation of the poor Roma, but for the social mobility of young Roma who choose proactive life strategy and development over ignorance.
  3. The highest quality standards in the field of art and culture so that to be proud of Roma artists and intellectuals and to say with pride that we contribute to the world cultural heritage and cultural treasures of different countries of the European Union and beyond. It is high time the culture and art of our artists become a source of community pride for all Roma, and particularly for young people, who are now ashamed of their origin. We expect from ERI a wide approach that cultural products will reach Roma from the local level and not one-sided focus on ethnographic descriptions of cultural practices and organizing folklore shows for the presentation of songs, dances and traditions to be carried out because very often this is a source of myths and stereotypes about Roma.
  4. Active and constant communication with European and national media in the field of art, culture and history of Roma in order to promote them among the majority and changing social relations between Roma and non-Roma, through which to begin a process of building a multicultural society within Europe and beyond.
  5. Ensuring broad public awareness of the diversity of the Romani language in the European context and beyond it. Applying a variety of approaches and resources to highlight the beauty and diversity of the Romani language and its significance as a marker of cultural identity. Encouraging members of Roma communities to take pride in their mother tongue and to be active in learning and developing it in schools, universities and other educational and cultural institutions. Maintaining active and ongoing communication with the state education and cultural institutions of Council of Europe member states to create all the conditions required for Romani mother tongue to be effectively preserved and developed in compliance with the respective international standards.

Mottó


„A cigány kultúrának intézményekre van szüksége...
Én ezt egy kulturális autonómia intézményrendszerén belül képzelem el, amely nem szavakból, hanem láncszemként egymáshoz kapcsolódó intézményekből állna.”

***

Részlet Orbán Viktornak  2008. április 11-én elhangzott beszédéből.
