European Network on Social Inclusion and Roma under the Structural Funds
Structural Funds: Investing in Roma
These handbooks, which provide an in-depth and technical analysis of two topics identified as among the most challenging ones, aim to serve as practical resources for Managing Authorities, Intermediate Bodies and other relevant stakeholders involved in the planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of ESI Funds. Together with the “Joint report on the use of Structural Funds for Roma inclusion” released in 2014, the handbooks are the key tools of the Network to achieve its goal of transferring the knowledge gained on the use of Structural Funds for Roma inclusion during the 2007-2013 programming period to the 2014-2020 period.
The 9th European Platform for Roma Inclusion gathered more than 200 participants among whom were representatives of EURoma Network Technical Secretariat, and other civil society organizations, governments of Member States, international organizations and representatives of European Roma communities as well as the European institutions. The European Commission was represented at the highest political level through the Commissioner for Justice, the Czech Vera Jourová, maximum responsible for the coordination of policies towards the Roma community.
EURoma Network Technical Secretariat will take part in the 9th European Platform for Roma Inclusion organized by European Commission in Brussels on march 16th and 17th 2015. Public Institutions and civil society involved in the Roma inclusion work will also take part in the platform.
EURoma, a European Network made up of representatives of twelve Member States, is determined to promote the use of Structural Funds (SF) to enhance the effectiveness of policies targeting the Roma and to promote their social inclusion.
Current Member States: Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Finland, Greece, Italy, Hungary, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Spain, Slovakia and Sweden.
