Interns of Romani background are now getting the chance to carry out research at the European Centre for Minority Issues’ (ECMI) headquarters. The interns are expected to take up the challenge in Flensburg from February on.
The three selected interns will do research on Roma immigration, Roma access to health services, and educational alternatives to penal punishments for young offenders.
ECMI wish to promote Roma studies
ECMI’s interest in hosting interns of Romani background is twofold:
ECMI wishes to encourage and promote the participation of early career researchers of Romani background in academia.
Secondly, ECMI recognizes that the Roma minority is faced with huge challenges. Promoting research on this subject will lead to a better understanding of the issues facing the Roma. Hopefully, it will also generate sustainable solutions in this respect.
