"The immigration of Romanian Roma to Western Europe: causes, effects, and future engagement strategies" 2013-2017- MigRom project.

Since April 2013, the European Roma and Travellers Forum is one of the partners of the MIGROM project together with the University of Manchester, the Fondation Maison des Sciences de l'Homme, the University of Verona, the University of Granada, the Romanian Institute for Research on National Minorities and the Manchester City Council.

The project investigates the experiences, motivations, and ambitions of Roma migrants from Romania who have recently moved to Italy, France, Spain, and the UK, and the effect of migration on their own lives and on the lives of relations left behind in the home communities in Romania. It will also investigate popular, media, and official reactions to Roma immigration. You can read more about the project here
