European Network on Social Inclusion and Roma under the Structural Funds
Structural Funds: Investing in Roma
Hosted by the Spanish ESF Managing Authority, this will be the last partners’ meeting of the 2007-2013 programming period. It will aim to identify the main challenges for the implementation phase and review how transnational cooperation and the EURoma Network could help Member States to address them.
This publication proposes a list of relevant indicators and tests the availability of existing data to measure progress (or the lack thereof) in addressing the exclusion of Roma in the Decade partner countries. It addresses the areas of employment, education, health and housing, non-discrimination, gender equality and poverty reduction.
The knowledge gained within the Network on the use of ESI Funds for Roma inclusion in the 2007-2013 programming period and proposals for a more effective use in the 2014-2020 period were shared with representatives of the public authorities responsible for these funds in all Member States.
The Commission seeks expressions of interest to participate in piloting Integrity Pacts in projects co-financed by the Structural and Cohesion Funds.
The publication "Making use of European Structural and Investment Funds for Roma inclusion. A Guide for local authorities” is now available in English, Croatian, Bulgarian and Spanish. Czech version will be released soon.
