EU and International Cooperation


Roma Integration 2020 participating economies are required to regularly report on the progress and achievements of their Roma integration policies. Reports are annually submitted to the Action Team and a regional compilation of reports is published. The reporting is aligned with the European Union reporting on Roma integration and is used within the EU accession progress reporting. Reporting standards are regionally agreed and participating economies use the same template. The template may be used by the civil society and other interested parties. Annual reports are used to debate relevant issues and possible policy adjustments.

EU & International Events

The Action Team implementing the project is closely following Roma integration related developments at EU and international level by maintaining regular correspondence with relevant stakeholders and participation at various events. Information received through such activity is used to improve the implementation of Roma integration policies in the region.

EU Framework

The Roma Integration 2020 project is based on the EU Framework for National Roma Integration Strategies up to 2020, which invites implementation in the enlargement region. The project links and mirrors the EU Framework in the region. EU Delegations act as key interlocutors with the project Action Team in these efforts. Through this, the project is linked with the so called Roma seminars organized by the EU Delegations, the accession reporting process, the Instrument for Pre-accession Assistance planning, the EU summits and platforms on Roma issues, and other similar developments relevant to the Roma integration at EU level.
