Lynne Engleman (United Kingdom)

Lynne Engleman (United Kingdom Association of Gypsy Women - UKAGW): Lynne is from Cleveland, and with a long stop in Chicago. Lynne’s interest in international issues came from studying in London, England and Heidelberg, Germany and travelling to southern India. She also interned with the Canadian Red Cross (International Humanitarian Law division) and worked as a research assistant at the Faculty of Social Work. At the time of her fellowship, she was pursuing a master’s degree in International Social Work at the University of Calgary in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.



APPOLOGIES

01 Sep

My apologies for the lapse in blogs. I am now in the Czech Republic supporting the Dženo Association in whatever way I can given the brief time I am here. Like UKAGW, Dženo is dedicated to improving the situation of the Roma (see http://www.dzeno.cz/?c_id=2533). Beyond that similarity it is difficult to compare the Czech Republic with its not so distant communist past to England without it. This does not mean one group or country is more deserving than the other, or that one issue is more pressing than another, just perhaps that there are different histories and with them, different complications. The important part is where they do meet: on the common and essential ground of helping to end discrimination of the Romany people.

I look forward to sending an update on my brief, but hopefully very productive time with the Dženo Association. In the meantime, please find below a blog I wrote several weeks ago on a site visit to Pitlochry, Scotland.
