Start date: Jan 1, 2016,
End date: Apr 30, 2016
There are groups of people all around Europe who differ from the majority in many aspects, including culture, history, language, religion, and roots (including cultural identification and descent). Minorities are not simply groups with few members, nor are they limited to just ethnic, religious, or linguistic minorities. The human rights of minorities are defined in United Nations' human rights conventions. The set of rights elaborated by the UN and other regional bodies for persons belonging to minorities have the aim of ensuring that minorities can enjoy their human rights on the same basis as other people. Their distinct identities require special protection from discrimination as well as special action to promote the preservation of their cultures, religions and languages. Their equal participation in the public sphere needs to be supported. This is part of the human rights obligations of states towards persons belonging to minorities. However, in recent years, the problem of social exclusion and discrimination is raising threateningly fast.The project focuses on recognizing the existence of and protecting the rights of minorities, working on all levels - grassroots, national and international - towards the realization of a true multicultural society. The youth exchange ”Equal in the diversity” will be based on drama performance. For this reason the host organization will ensure meetings with experts in the minority rights field and also drama professionalsThe project will take place in Plovdiv , Bulgaria from 03 March to 07 March 2016 and partners will be NGOs from Romania and Azerbaijan.
