Roma Youth Log In: Promoting active participation of Roma youth and the structured dialogue in the development of policies for Roma youth in SlovakiaYoung Roma men and women face the same discrimination, disadvantage and problems than other young people today: unemployment, social and economic exclusion, complicated transition from childhood to adulthood, and uncertain future. In the case of young Roma, however, these problems are exacerbated by the fact that they are Roma and in addition to double discrimination must also deal with family and social traditions that unite them and are often very firmly anchored. As indicated by the researchers in the company are young Roma men and women coming from disadvantaged backgrounds who seek to participate and engage in current social processes, but too often find that their voice is not being listened to, their interests are ignored and their involvement is to mainstream society undesirable.In order to be able to meaningfully participate in decision and policy making, the Roma youth activists and organizations must be strengthened by the acquisition of knowledge and skills to be able to carry out advocacy activity and formulate political messages.
