In Kicevo, the cooperation between the municipality and the Roma NGO is satisfactory, but it can be better

According to the Roma NGO sector in the municipality of Kicevo about 2,000 Roma live. Places where they live according to information from Roma NGO activists Nevzat Mamudovski and Senat Ibraimovski from Roma Network NGO - Kicevo, depending on plans and programs, Regarding the infrastructure in Roma settlements
in the municipality of Kicevo it can be concluded that it is relatively good.

Otherwise the legalization of illegally constructed buildings is ongoing and no major problems have been reported. In addition, legalization is expected to take place at an increasing pace.

One of the problems Roma are facing with legalization is that they have multiple owners, and they cannot obtain statements from the owners.

But the Roma themselves say they face different problems or disadvantages. There is no asphalt in Prilepska Street, water shortages, and some houses lack electricity.

The conclusion is that the municipality can have greater coordination with this population in resolving any problems that arise.

Introducing the “Roma Stories” Oral History Project

“Roma Stories” is the Roma Support Group’s Roma Oral History Project. It is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and works with Roma researchers, local community members, London Metropolitan Archives, museums and academic institutions to explore, archive and share the unrecorded stories of Roma refugees and migrants in London.

With the Roma Stories project extended until late September, the various facets of the oral history research and archiving are coming together towards an affecting and evocative end result.

Over the past six months, we have finished conducting a second round of interviews with around forty members of the Roma community of London; we have translated and transcribed the majority of these and are now in the process of proof-reading, compiling documentary footage and preparing for the exhibition of the work in locations across the city, from the London Metropolitan Archives to Redbridge Museum and University of London.
