Discrimination of the Roma communities in Barcelona is seriously underreported. We have developed the app DIKHAT! ("watch out" in Romani language) in collaboration with the IT company DRIBBA, through which people will be able to report antigypsyism. The app is also used to also collect data on the kinds of discrimination that Roma people face.
The app DIKHAT! is now ready for download at App Store and Play Store
We firmly believe that nobody could defend the Roma community better than themselves. Empowerment is the strongest tool against antigypsyism.
The Roma agents and the AGREP project team during the first training session on anti-discrimination laws and how to report discrimination, by the Office for Non-Discrimination in Barcelona, on 2 February, 2021.
In addition, AGREP offered a training session for representatives of the Catalan police force, Department of education and regional government (Generalitat), on 16 December 2020, with the title "Anti-gypsyism and the public institutions: how can we detect it and what can we do about it?"
The research team from GRITIM-UPF has created a database on the discrimination of Roma people, its consequences and reactions against it, including transcriptions from in-depth interviews, participant observations and data collection through the app Dikhat!
