Background

The FRA currently implements a multiannual Roma programme (2012-2020) with the aim of supporting the EU’s effort to make “a tangible difference to Roma people’s lives.” In this regard the Agency cooperates with governments, EU institutions, the Council of Europe, UN and other international organisations.

Concretely, the FRA

  • regularly monitors progress on the ground improving Roma integration in employment, education, healthcare and housing;
  • contextualises statistical findings through qualitative, stakeholder-driven research and engagement providing good practice examples on Roma integration issues;
  • assists Member States in improving their monitoring of policy outcomes.
