The Dosta! campaign started as part of a wider Council of Europe/European Commission Joint Programme "Equal Rights and Treatment for Roma in South Easter Europe" and has been implemented in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, the Republic of Serbia, and "the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia", during 2006 and 2007. Launched as a regional campaign, “Dosta!” raised the interest of other Council of Europe Member States. Consequently, in 2008-2009, it is launched in Ukraine and Moldova, as well as opened to partnerships in other Council of Europe member States. Thus, Italy (May), Romania (June), Croatia (July), Slovenia (September) have joined the campaign in 2008, followed by Latvia in January 2009 and Bulgaria and France in April 2010.

Dosta !-Congress Prize for Municipalities
The “DOSTA!-Congress Prize for municipalities” was launched in 2007 by the Council of Europe Congress of Local and Regional Authorities and the Dosta! Campaign as part of their ongoing work to strengthen the role of local authorities in the field of Roma and minority rights’ protection.

The 3rd edition of the Dosta !-Congress Prize for Municipalities that have implemented innovative and creative initiatives to effectively ensure the long-term integration of the Roma and Traveller communities within their borders, while respecting the diversity of these communities and ensuring their active participation in democratic life, is now open.

The top three projects will receive the Dosta !-Congress Prize for Municipalities during a ceremony organised on the occasion of the Congress’ 20th Plenary Session which will take place at the headquarters of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg in March 2011.
