ROMED2: National Launching Meeting and Workshop, Kiev, Ukraine, 20-21 May 2014

Between 20th and 21st of May 2014, ROMED2 was officially launched in Kiev (Ukraine), with the presence of representatives from various ministries, local and regional administrations, Roma NGOs, Roma mediators, and the facilitators of the Community Action Groups from the five selected municipalities/regions that joined the programme: Odessa, Uzhgorod, Kirovograd, Kiev, and Pereyalslav-Khmlenytskyi.
