The network is an example of how the right to participation can be promoted and put into practice – from international networking onto the local level. The network also provides the space for participation in the development of an online platform. The highlighted youth event is an example of young people being given the opportunity to participate, both as participants of the event and as organisers. The event also gives a strong focus to the importance of support, with the young people entering a learning experience and being motivated to turn this into participation back home. Lastly, the nature of the subject links participation to both human rights education and to the recognition of Roma identity.
