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. 19th

The aim of the course is to present a theoretical and practical framework of multiculturalism in Europe while using comparative studies covering other parts of the world, mainly Canada and USA. The course will also analyze major political and legal instruments for the protection of minorities and for the elimination of racism. The objective is to enable participants to understand issues of inequality, race, and gender and their impact on policy making and policy implementation. Through learning about “theOther” participants will also have the opportunity to learn about issues concerning their own cultures and societies. Through active participation and the formulation of policy suggestions (or analysis) students will gain greater understanding of the complexities surrounding the issue of minority rights and policies specific to inequality, race and gender.
