Who are Roma?

Impact: Public Policy Impact

Description of impact

Published text for The Progressive Post’s Special Dossier: Roma integration. Input to discussion of the new European Union Framework for Roma Integration policies

Who is affected

The European Union


The current EU Framework for Roma Integration policies runs out this year. The EC is committed to renewing it for another decade. The current one however has triggered a massive increase in Roma-related institutional activity, but little tangible improvement for Roma people's real lives. For a new Framework to bring about real change, a thorough evaluation of the current one is necessary. And a profound re-thinking of some of its conceptual bases is unavoidable.

The special Dossier: a collection of articles that analyse the current framework and that suggest ways for improvement was published as Progressive Post’s Special Dossier by Foundation for European progressive studies.
