Improving the integration of Roma at the local level

This project was jointly implemented by CEDEM, NGO Young Roma and the Municipality of Herceg Novi, with the financial support of the Open Society Foundations in Budapest.

Local housing study which was the main product of the project, aims to provide a detailed overview of the housing of Roma and Egyptian population in the municipality, and propose recommendations based on valid and verifiable data from the field. The study was supported by expert analysis of the legal consultant and civil engineer. A separate part of the study offers the report from the field research. 

The field research was a basic starting point in which the team identified the existing problems of housing in villages and individual houses, then the social, physical, educational and professional capacity of residents. Such comprehensive approach creates the conditions for finding the right way to help these families by using the internal resources of the population.
