This Report concludes a full-year project conducted by the Joseph R. Crowley Program in International Human Rights at the Fordham University School of Law. The 2004-2005 Crowley Fellow, Aram Schvey, taught a human-rights seminar on Roma Access to Education in Contemporary Romania. The course culminated in a two-week-long human-rights fact-finding mission to Romania that he organized. During the course of the mission, the students and faculty members traveled hundreds of miles across Romania and spoke to dozens of Roma and non-Roma students and parents, as well as teachers, principals, human rights advocates, government officials, and members of international organizations, such as UNICEF and the World Bank. The delegation was led by Aram Schvey and Professors Martin Flaherty and Tracy Higgins, and included Dean Nitza Escalera and the seven second-year law students enrolled in the seminar: Caroline Conway, Michael Eskenazi, JoAnn Kamuf, Gowri Krishna, Michelle Pallak, Katy Schuman, and Nakeeb Siddique.
