Responses to State Sponsored Collective Injustice (past event poster with a photo of the memorial for the Roma holocaust


Because of the coronavirus, we had to reschedule our planned event for International Roma Day, Intersectional Discrimination: the Roma Case. It would have been the eighth annual International Roma Day event at Harvard. But we cannot let the day pass without marking it.


To honor the day the Francois-Xavier Bagnoud Center for Health and Human Rights at Harvard University will host a Facebook “Watch Party” at 10 AM on April 8. Together we will watch the first panel in the 2016 event, State-Sponsored Collective Violence, followed by the opening of 2019’s Neglected Voices: the Global Roma Diaspora. The director of the FXB Center’s Roma Program, Dr. Margareta (Magda) Matache will join us on Facebook chat for the session. Go to our Facebook page.

Note that these videos and more are available for watching on the FXB Center’s YouTube Channel.

Watch 2019’s Neglected Voices: the Global Roma Diaspora (in 4 parts; this links to part 1).
