Overview

"At the present time, as international institutions continually expand their activities on behalf of Gypsy communities, it is an appropriate to take stock of the internal dynamics of these institutions as revealed in the texts they have drawn up and issued." "A single volume collection of these texts will be useful in a number of ways: it puts the inception of reflection on such matters, and the actions stemming from them into historical perspective; it demonstrates the sustained interest of European and international bodies; it gives the clearest picture available of fields which have been investigated by these institutions and their component bodies; it will serve as a reference source and working tool, giving instant, convenient access to texts which were previously widely scattered and often difficult to obtain." "If our thoughts and actions are to progress it is essential that we are aware of prior work. What proposals have already been put forward, and in which subject areas? Fieldworkers and activists, administrators and public authorities alike, all need reference materials on which to base their own work. Once such materials are readily available they can serve as a basis for further action, as well as indicating "new" areas requiring exploration and development." If people are aware of the possibilities and of their rights they are in a better position to negotiate with their environment and to see that their rights are respected: familiarity with existing guidelines and decisions taken by democratic bodies, and with the progress of ideas of respect for individuals and cultures, makes it possible to participate in ongoing debates and to support others active in the field.
