Hosted by the Greek partners, the meeting will bring together EURoma partners, the European Commission and other relevant Greek actors to address different topics of relevance to improve the use of ESI Funds for the promotion of the social inclusion, equal opportunities and fight against discrimination of the Roma community.
The explicit reference to Roma, the increased resources for social inclusion, fight against poverty and discrimination or the attention to partnership, transnational cooperation and capacity- building should contribute to this.
EURoma welcomes the proposal to explicitly mention, for the first time, Roma, a straightforward acknowledgement of the need for ERDF and the Cohesion Fund to address the unequal situation faced by this group across the EU.
Outcomes should help European Commission and other relevant stakeholders in the implementation of the EU Framework up to 2020 and the preparation of the post-2020 period. Particular attention is paid to the role of ESI Funds.
EURoma closely follows the discussions on the post-2020 EU frameworks for Roma policies and for ESI Funds and contributes to them based on partners’ experience and the reflection processes launched within the Network.
European Parliament's Resolution aims to provide guidance to the European Commission in the development of the post-2020 EU Framework and to the Member States in the subsequent design of their National Strategies.
