Location: Tuzla, Bosnia and Herzegovina
The activity was carried out in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Canton of Tuzla. The activity was divided into three meetings, the focus of which were three different groups. The first group were stakeholders who work directly on the problem of Roma in the communities, how and in what way they solve the biggest problems and what are our steps that would help to solve them more easily.
The second and third focus groups were participants from the Tuzla canton area who responded to the invitation. We shared with them their opinion and the problems they face regarding the positions of Roma in society. We conveyed to them the problems and ways in which stakeholders see them and how they could contribute to solving them. The list of participants will be added later today, as well as the contract.
