National Platforms

The project assists participating economies to organize annual discussions on Roma integration policies involving relevant public officials, local level officials, Roma civil society and other relevant stakeholders. These forums are designated to review progress by presenting governments’ and civil society’s monitoring reports. Conflicting findings are particularly discussed with a view to identify appropriate solutions. The forums are also used to prioritize measures, provide input to the policy planning, assist with the appropriate budgeting and mainstream Roma issues in relevant policies. Certain specific issues of concern related to Roma integration may also be discussed.
