Key Learnings from the PEER Project: A Combined Research Paper

In this research paper the authors describe the aims, general approach and activities of the PEER project. The authors outline the diverse contexts in which they worked. The authors then provide an overview of the key learning from the project. Finally, they conclude that Roma children and young people, in order to exercise their right to participate as citizens, will readily engage in participation opportunities whenever they can take an informal and flexible approach to engage with them on issues that they choose and that have direct relevance to their own lives, and whenever structural, institutional and expert support is available to them.
