Promotion of the Documentary and the Analysis for “Mapping the Roma Housing Differences in the Municipalities of Kocani and Stip"

As part of the EU-funded project "Mapping the Differences in Roma Housing" the promotion of the documentary film as well as the analysis made.

The start of the promotion was from the municipalities of Kocani and Stip.

In both municipalities the interest was high. Members of the local self-government, public enterprises as well as the Roma NGO sector and ordinary Roma citizens living in Roma settlements in both Kocani and Stip also had their presence.

After the promotion of the documentary and the analysis, discussions were also made on the topics, where all parties pointed to another priority of the municipality itself and future plans.

The promotion continues with the following municipalities of Veles and Kumanovo.

In Kicevo, the cooperation between the municipality and the Roma NGO is satisfactory, but it can be better

According to the Roma NGO sector in the municipality of Kicevo about 2,000 Roma live. Places where they live according to information from Roma NGO activists Nevzat Mamudovski and Senat Ibraimovski from Roma Network NGO - Kicevo, depending on plans and programs, Regarding the infrastructure in Roma settlements
in the municipality of Kicevo it can be concluded that it is relatively good.

Otherwise the legalization of illegally constructed buildings is ongoing and no major problems have been reported. In addition, legalization is expected to take place at an increasing pace.

One of the problems Roma are facing with legalization is that they have multiple owners, and they cannot obtain statements from the owners.

But the Roma themselves say they face different problems or disadvantages. There is no asphalt in Prilepska Street, water shortages, and some houses lack electricity.

The conclusion is that the municipality can have greater coordination with this population in resolving any problems that arise.
