The 5th International Roma Congress, meeting in Prague continued with the second day of its 5-day program on Wednesday. Olga Szantova talked to some of the participants and asked them about the proceedings and how they saw the significance of the congress.
Of course, it's too early to evaluate. After the official opening on Tuesday morning, the participants have been meeting in six committees, dealing with such problems as Roma education, including the future of the Roma languages, compensation for Roma victims of the Holocaust, migration and other problems.
One of the participants, Orhan Galjus, program manager at the Roma Media Fund, which is a part of the Open Society Institute in Budapest, sees these discussions as probably the most important part of the whole congress.
