10 years working together to improve the lives of Roma people
What is EURoma?
Despite progress made, Roma population, the largest ethnic minority in Europe, still faces the highest levels of poverty, exclusion and discrimination (even more with the crisis and with the growth of racist speeches/movements).
Within this framework, the Network aims to:
- Help improve the effectiveness and impact of the initiatives targeting the Roma population in the current programming period, notably within ESF and ERDF but also within other European funds and instruments.
- Contribute, based on partners’ experience and the work within the Network, to European/national frameworks and policies of relevance for ESI Funds/Roma inclusion.
- Foster transnational cooperation among Network partners as well as between them and other relevant actors as regards ESI Funds and/or Roma inclusion.
Following eight years of successful work over the 2007-2013 programming period, in 2017, the Network launched its activities in the 2014-2020 programming period, keeping the elements that had proven of value and incorporating new ones, building upon the potential offered by the current political and financial frameworks on the one hand and partners’ needs and expectations on the other.
The EURoma Network is funded under the Spanish European Social Fund (ESF) Operational Programme Social Inclusion and Social Economy.
