The principles of equality, non-discrimination, observance of human rights and protection of ethnic minorities are fundamental European values. One of the traditionally most severely marginalized and excluded groups have been the Roma, Gypsies, and Travellers. The course describes the currents situation and in Europe and aims to explain reasons behind prejudice, stereotypes, and discrimination against these ethnic groups and to introduce students to public policy, legal and advocacy measures dealing with these negative phenomena at the global, European and national levels. This course will compare European practices with the North American condition.

The course structure is based on the concept of Blended learning and combines online with face-to-face learning. Most of the course work takes place in the moodle environment on dl.cuni.cz The number of students in the course is limited to 15.

Course Begins in Feb.
