Doghi, Dan Pavel

Romania

What an honour to visit the REF in Budapest, and find there Mr Doghi, Higher Education Programme Manager. Voice of prompt ability, authority. Within him, such belief that, Yes, we can get there. The summary of his accomplishment is rather wilting: extensive NGO work in Romania, central to the celebrated first Roma-focused PHARE programme within Romania, Advocacy Fellow at Public Interest Law Initiative (Columbia University Budapest), Officer in the OSCE ODIHR Contact Point for Roma and Sinti Issues, Member of the Board of the ERRC, Programme Coordinator at the Open Society Foundation’s spin-off Resource Center for Roma Communities in Cluj. Former National Director of REF Romania, and, of course, central to the Roma Education Fund’s tertiary education scholarship program right now. As with others, it is possible to imagine him Minister of Education.
