ROMA – A Discussion of Diversity and the Treatment of Minorities

ROMA – A Discussion of Diversity and the Treatment of Minorities is an online course created by CanopyLAB, an organization founded and run by Humanity in Action Senior Fellow Sahra-Josephine Hjorth Petersen. During the 5-week course 64 students from across the European Union, both Roma and non-Roma, learned about the situation of Roma people during and after World War II.

The course also teaches about structural racism and contemporary discrimination of Roma people in Europe as well as about the dreams and expectations of Roma youth. The project aimed at creating campaigns and social projects to help solving some of the problems Roma people in the European Union face today. The course began on October 18, 2015 and is available here.
