Roma employment conference

FRA delivered a keynote presentation on the employment and training situation of Roma at the closing conference of an EURoma multi-annual project.

EURoma is a coalition of Roma and pro-Roma organisations led by Fundación Secretariado Gitano.

The presentation visualised the trends for the countries covered in the survey between 2016 and 2021 for the headline employment indicators. It covered the factors contributing to the poor employment performance.

The discussion following the presentation indicated the relevance of FRA’s data and the opportunities for policy impact through direct communication with the respective country desks in the European Commission.

The event took place on 7 June in Brussels.
