“Everyone has the right to a nationality”

Roma Lawyers Association

The Roma Lawyers Association is an independent, not-profit association formed by a group of Roma law students and the first Roma female attorney at law, who is one of the only two Roma attorneys in Macedonia. The association was founded in August 2015 as a response to the need of Roma lawyers to get into the legal profession and be able to represent the interests of the Roma community, influence the government, be a public opinion shaper, initiate policy and legislative analysis and changes, and advocate. The final aim is to ensure the full enjoyment of rights by the Roma community as granted by the Constitution and laws of the Republic of Macedonia.
