About the project   The Georg Eckert Institute (GEI), the Council of Europe (CoE), and the Roma Education Fund (REF) are engaged in a research project titled “The Representation of Roma in European Curricula and Textbooks”. The overall goal of the project is to analyze the representation of Roma in school curricula and textbooks currently used in education in various countries in Europe, in secondary school curricula and textbooks. In a first phase of the project, country reports provided information on Roma being mentioned in national secondary curricula. Further, an analysis of the curricular excerpts provided an evaluation on how Roma are mentioned. In the second phase, an analysis of textbooks in a selected group of countries and disciplines was conducted. The last phase of the project will complete the textbook analysis for all selected countries and disciplines.
