Romani_population_average_estimateParticipants, linguists, teachers, journalists and Roma organizations coming from 15 countries, were meeting in Zagreb the 3rd and 5th of November in 2012. Since then, Roma community decided to celebrate the Roma language statement, each 5th of November. The main purpose of this statement was the dissemination of Roma language and its recognition as one of the European tongues.
Since then, the European Charter for Regional or Minority Languages encourages National Governments to accept Roma language in public administrations and institutions. Indeed, states shall recognize and finance the Roma language promotion. European Institutions should make an intensive control of all actions regarding Roma language abroad.
The World day of Roma language should be stated and recognized in all countries the 5th of November. In that case, from Mediation4Roma project, we would like to recognize the importance of Roma language in order to work on the promotion of Roma culture and its cultural heritage’s visibilization.
