    "Dosta", a Romani word meaning "enough", is an awareness raising campaign which aims at bringing non-Roma closer to Roma citizens.

    "Dosta" means that we want to stop prejudices and stereotypes not by denouncing them but by breaking them, showing who the Roma really are. They are not perfect, of course, but "who is?". What is sure is that Roma are European citizens: they form a group of about 10 million people and can be found in almost all Council of Europe member states; in some Central and Eastern European countries, they represent over 5% of the population.

    Being European citizens means that Roma have not only duties but also rights and aspirations like everybody else, and therefore their citizenship and human rights must be recognized. Furthermore, Roma culture is a rightful part of Europe’s cultural heritage: it has always contributed to the enrichment of European societies. It is now time to recognize this contribution.
