Ciné-ONU: Which Children Matter?

On 19 March 2018, Ciné-ONU will be screening ‘Which Children Matter?’ in order to mark the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. In this film, you will meet Czech and Slovak Romani immigrant children, several considered ineducable by their own societies, as they thrive in a new school, in a new language, in an equitable environment in the UK. The film, which reveals how all children can reach their full potential, will be screened in partnership with OHCHR, at Cinéma Galeries in Brussels.

The screening will be preceded by a Facebook Live event broadcast on our Cine-ONU Facebook page on 19 March at 17:15 CET. Tune in live to hear Jenne Magno discuss the discrimination against Romani children in education and how, in November 2007, the European Court of Human Rights found the Czech Republic had unlawfully, indirectly discriminated against such children in violation of the European Convention on Human Rights and what has been done since.

The screening will be followed by a conversation on the issues highlighted in the film. The guest speakers will include: Jenne Magno (Director); Andor Urmos (DG Regio, European Commission); Claude Cahn (UN Human Rights Regional Office for Europe); moderated by Deborah Seward (UNRIC).
