This year, IRU starts very successfully. This confirmation was also received by the European Parliament in Brussels and the United Nations in New York. Earlier, the IRU team prepared a Starter Resolution as well as a program under the name "Local Act - Global Impact" which sent them to all relevant international institutions for consideration for inviting her to presentations.
It was fruitful after the Office of the President of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani and the Vice-President Livia Jaroka received an invitation to the President of the IRA Zoran Dimov for his participation at the next EP meeting to be held on January 30 in Brussels, where he will also have and a solemn ceremony marking the Holocaust International Day.

Otherwise, the Strategic Resolution of the IRU in brief reflects the following:
We as representatives of the Roma people make efforts to protect the Roma population and our future generations from all negative occurrences in the past, in the present and in the future, in all forms of discrimination, hate speech, segregation, intolerance, violence, genocide, antigypsism and at the same time we are deeply believe in respect of the human fundamental rights, equality between all genders, creation of favorable climate for respect of the rights, respect of the basic democratic principles of freedom, and the life standard, as well as the elimination of all of the irregularities, in collaboration with the international institutions which are obliged for that.
I as a President of the International Romani Union believe that we couldn't think for the future without return to our history and acknowledge its values along with the countries where Roma live and helping them with socio-economic politics and culture of the Roma.
