Exploring closer cooperation on Roma integration work

During the European Roma Platform in Brussels from 29 to 30 November, the Agency discussed future work on Roma integration with key stakeholders.

The European Commission‘s Roma unit is increasingly interested in closer cooperation in the area of monitoring. The Agency‘s possible contribution to the Commission‘s 2017 Communication and the finalisation of the online tool for collecting information for the Member States’ annual reporting on Roma integration meaures were also explored. A number of National Roma Contact Points expressed interest in synergies with the Agency‘s planned data collection work for 2017.

Country-launches of selected Roma findings from the second EU minorities and discrimination survey that were recently published were also discussed.
