Legal seminar

On December 5, 2009 in the ADC Memorial office a seminar for lawyers involved in the ADC Memorial project “Legal Aid for Romani-Kotlyar Settlements in Russia” was held. The seminar was organized for the lawyers and Roma living in compact settlements from Yekaterinburg, Nizhny Tagil, Volgograd, Kaliningrad and some other towns. The main topics were personal identification documents and legalization of land and housing. Special attention was given to discrimination in education: in some schools Roma children are placed in separate classes and even buildings. Quality of education for Roma children is inadequate and majority of children has no chance to enter the secondary school. Access to education is complicated, too. ADC Memorial has prepared an hr report on the problem of discrimination and segregation of Roma children in schools which is to be published soon.
