Summer Seminar for Roma and Non-Roma Youth, 22-26 August 2011
Call for Participants

Attention: The deadline for submitting the applications has been postponed to 16 August!

The ICDT, in cooperation with the Tom Lantos Institute and the Eszterházy Károly College, is organizing the Summer Seminar for Roma and Non-Roma Youth between 22-26 August 2011 in Eger, Hungary.

Instead of exploring the issues of social division and prejudice through the lens of ethnicity, the seminar aims to address problems that are common to many segments of the Hungarian society, such as gender inequality, the rights of minorities, unemployment and the welfare system, education, the gap between developed and underdeveloped regions, and corruption. Beside lectures, the seminar aims to increase mutual understanding through extracurricular activities such as a debating program, cultural activities, and meetings with representatives of leading civil society organizations. The language of the seminar will be Hungarian in order to ensure a wider basis for selecting the participants.

What we offer:
• A one-week seminar with high-qualified lecturers and speakers at a historic and beautiful city of Hungary;
• Inspiring atmosphere and great chance to get involved in a network that could help you to improve your professional career.

What we look for:
• Prominently motivated university students;
• Interest or experience in working with NGOs is an advance (but not obligation);
• Willingness and courage to share personal opinion in different matters related to the topic of the seminar.

For further information please refer to the Call for Participants in Hungarian attached below.

If you find attractive our offer, please send your CV and a motivation letter not more than two pages on why you are interested in this topic and how you can/will use the knowledge you obtain to Mr. Mirwais Janan ( and Mr. Márton Varga (

The deadline for submitting the applications is Tuesday, 16 August 2011.
