Slovak President Andrej Kiska organized a public panel discussion on the subject of including Romani people into society on Thursday, 26 January at the Evangelical College in Prešov that aimed to point out that verified solutions exist to some of the most essential problems in this area. The discussion also aimed to describe the genesis of the current state of affairs in connection with the planned repressive measures to be undertaken by police.

"The fate of the Romani communities is one of the chapters of shame in the story of modern Slovakia," Kiska said during the discussion with a panel of experts on Romani issues in various areas. Romani people actively addressing the problems of education and the inclusion of Romani people generally participated directly in the discussion.

Those participating were Vlado Rafael, the director of EduRoma who is a member of an advisory group to the Education Ministry; Jarmila Vaňová, the director of Romed, who is a journalist and field worker; and Iveta Horváthová, a volunteer with the Romani book club Paľikerav. Guests in the audience included state representatives, mayors of cities and municipalities, experts from NGOs, community workers, teachers and students.
