EURoma is actively involved in relevant fora and initiatives of European institutions and organisations in connection with ESI Funds and Roma inclusion.
This involvement is crucial to advocate the importance of ESI Funds in the promotion of social inclusion, equal opportunities and non-discrimination of the Roma population and to call the attention on key aspects to achieve an efficient use of these funds.
Presence in relevant fora, events and decision-making spaces
such as the European Roma Platform or the EC Roma Summits and other initiatives organised by different European institutions and international bodies, meetings of the Decade for Roma inclusion, etc.
