IPC’s executive director attended the conference organized by OSCE/ODIHR Best Practices for Roma Integration (BPRI) in Tirana on 28 February 2014.
During the conference, the examples of good practices in improving the housing situation for Roma in the Western Balkans were presented and more than 100 representatives of municipal authorities and NGOs from the region were familiarized with good practices on housing legalization, settlement upgrading and social housing for Roma, as well as with recommendations on their implementation.
BPRI is a regional project funded by the European Union, supported by OSCE participating States and implemented by the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR). The project supports innovative programmes to promote greater Roma participation in political and public life and decision-making, help to combat discrimination and contribute to better living conditions.
