Council of Europe calls for participation at the 9th International Roma Women’s Conference “Building Equality Together” co-organised with the Government of North Macedonia

Since 2007, the Roma Women’s conferences have provided the opportunity for Roma and Traveller women to address, on the international stage, the issues affecting their own and their families’ lives. They have also provided a space where Roma and Traveller women have kept each other informed of issues concerning them and exchanged experiences. 


The 9th International Roma and Traveller Women Conference will serve as a forum for an exchange between Roma and Traveller Women civil society and mainstream other minority women’s lobbying on building alliances with the goal of achieving a coordinated, overarching support and monitoring system in the implementation of key standards of the Council of Europe and other international organisations and of national authorities promoting gender equality for all women, taking into account the intersectionality and multiple discrimination faced by Roma and Traveller women.

The 9th International Roma Women’s Conference co-organised by the Council of Europe and the Government of North Macedonia is scheduled to take place on 30 November-1 December 2023 in Skopje. The event is built around the development of a draft recommendation on equality for Roma and Traveller women and girls to the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, under the supervision of the Steering Committee on Anti-Discrimination, Diversity and Inclusion (CDADI) and the Committee of Experts on Roma and Traveller Issues (ADI-ROM).

The call for participation is addressed to Roma and Traveller women across the Council of Europe member states.

Interested candidates must complete an online Application Form by 1 October 2023, midnight, Central European Time (CEST). Incomplete applications or applications received after that deadline will not be considered.

The event will take place on 30 November -1 December 2023, North Macedonia.

The Conference languages will be English, Macedonian and Romani.



Notifications will be sent to successful participants before 10 October 2023
