EURoma closely follows the discussions on the post-2020 EU Multiannual Financial Framework, including on the future ESI Funds Regulations, and actively contributes to them based on Network partners’ experience and ongoing reflection processes within the Network.
EURoma releases a revised version of the position paper published in November 2018
in response to the European Commission’s Proposal for a Regulation of the European Social Fund Plus (ESF+). The document has been reviewed and adapted to consider the European Parliament (EP)’s position on the EC’s proposal as well as the discussions within the European Council.
EURoma welcomes and acknowledges the progress made in the Proposal for a Regulation on the ESF+ adopted by the EC, which opens up new opportunities for advancing on Roma equality across the EU after 2020.
We are also glad to see that the report adopted by the European Parliament (EP) on the Commission’s proposal includes amendments that, if adopted, would further contribute to make the ESF+ a more powerful instrument for achieving a more social Europe and advancing on equality, social inclusion and non-discrimination of the Roma community across the EU after 2020.
We also welcome and support EP´s amendments to the ERDF-Cohesion Fund Regulation proposal, which, if finally approved, would contribute to better using the potential of these funds for Roma people.
