Hosted by the Members of the European Parliament and in close cooperation with DG NEAR, European Roma Grassroots Organizations (ERGO) Network and Roma Active Albania organize a side event on the first day of the 2018 EU Platform, as part of the project Joint Initiative to Empower Roma Civil Society in the Western Balkans and Turkey.
Next 8 October, EUROCITIES will attend an event dedicated to policymakers, international organisations and stakeholders about the hot topic of Roma migrants returning to Western Balkans.
Despite the committment of the European Commission, the issue deserves more attention from policymakers, for a full implementation of policies and legislation, and to provide tools for a better and wider participation of the Roma community in the decision-making processes.
During the event, a new study conducted by DG NEAR will be presented. Representatives from Roma community networks will also give speeches, presenting the main challenges that the Roma minority has to face.
Attached there is a comprehensive presentation of the event, as well as the complete agenda.
