The project allowed the grantee to introduce and test a new methodology for involving youth in the sphere of international advocacy on behalf of the Roma population in Central and Southern Europe, while maintaining its already established role in strategic litigation. The project had an impact on the youth involved. Its longer-term impact is harder to assess, as is the case in most human rights projects. Impact is often the result of a combination of events and actions, legal changes and court judgments, along attitudinal shifts on the part of decision-makers, opinion-leaders, the mass media and the public-at-large.
