The UN has announced that subject to confirmation next month, the Internatiomal Romani Union is to be re-enstated to membership of ECOSOC. This return to activity at the UN represents an important aspect of the Union's ongoing revival and expansion since the 10th World Roma Congress in 2016.

Within a few short years of its orginal elevation in 1979 the IRU lost its place on the rosta. The intention now is to create a representative team in New York able to press forward at every opportunity with issues relevant to our communities and the destiny of the Roma Nation.

Dear Delegates and members of the IRU, Brothers and Sisters!


It is my great honor as the President of the IRU to inform you about a very important situation for u8s as the IRU. Actually, since the very beginning of our functioning after the Congress of the IRU in March 2016 in Skopje, the dedication to regulate the obligations and tasks with several international institutions all over Europe and the world is slowly but certainly bringing results.


One of our goals as a part of the plan and program of the functioning of the IRU was to regulate the relations and functioning of the IRU in the activities and work of the EVZ Foundation in Berlin, Germany.

After several years of misunderstanding on both sides of the IRUs, on the one hand, IRU -Vienna, whose president is Zoran Dimov, and IRU - Latvia, whose president is Nortmunds Rudevics, is ending.

Within the past activities for meeting and reconciliation, which took place on the 23 of January 2018 in Berlin - Germany in the premises of the EVZ Foundation, a meeting was held between the two parties. At that meeting, besides the presidents of the two IRU, Dimov and Rudevics were present also Ivan Bariev from Russia, Gruia Bumbu from Romania, Vasily Dragoy from Moldova, Roman Choynacki from Poland, as well as two lawyers Dr Frank Reinhagen from Germany and Barry Fischer from the USA.

За прв пат во историјата на Ромскиот Традиционален Крис, на 13 Октомври 2017 година во Белград беше промовиран Кодексот на однесување на Крисот.

Ова значеше уште поцврста верба во работата на членовите на Ромскиот Традиционален Крис, кој ја земаа обврската за целосно и професионално извршување на својата задача како ромски крисари.

Кодексот беше промовиран и образложен пред присутните делегати во Сава Центар - Белград за време на Парламентарната средба на ИРУ на 13 .10.2017 година.

Changing the new composition of the Presidency of the IRU headed for a year and a half is Zoran Dimov and the participation of the Assembly of ERTF in Strasbourg confirmed the new status of the oldest and respectable World Roma Organization, the last day of the meeting the decision was made to forming Executive Committee ERTF, who will be one of the important pillars of the Council of Europe in Strasbourg to address Roma issues, gypsism and emigration.

This directly ERTF and all its affiliated organizations give importance to that IRU work openly, transparently and firmly in addressing all the core issues related to the Roma population.

Among other things, the Committee Chair of the ERTF Vuolsantra Miranda, President of the IRU Zoran Dimov, and among other Asmet Elezovski from NRC Lars Demetri MP from the PCER Samka Ibraimovski, Rutko Kawczinsky and others.
