On 28 April, FRA hosted the first meeting of the relaunched Roma Working Party.
The online meeting covered a monitoring framework for the upcoming strategic EU Framework for Equality, Inclusion and Participation for Roma until 2030.
In preparation for this meeting, FRA collected input from the EU National Roma Contact Points on FRA’s suggested framework of indicators on Roma equality, inclusion and participation.
The framework benefited also from earlier consultations with key civil society organisations working on Roma inclusion.
The meeting brought together 16 Member States with delegates from the governments and the statistical offices who joined in preparing to endorse the indicator framework. Four Member States shared their experience with collecting Roma data.
The Roma Working Party will continue in May 2020 discussing the process indicators in the monitoring framework.
