The CDADI provides a co-ordinating supervising and monitoring role in the functioning of its substructures:
The Committee of Experts on Roma and Traveller Issues (ADI-ROM) oversees the implementation of the Strategic Action Plan for Roma and Traveller Inclusion (2020-2025). It reviews the implementation of national legislation, policy and practice concerning Roma and Traveller inclusion through thematic reports based on visits, with a view to promoting relevant Council of Europe standards. Based on those thematic reports, the ADI-ROM exchanges information, views and experience on member States’ legislation, policies and practice concerning Roma and Travellers inclusion in order to identify examples of effective measures and practices and to assist member States in the development and implementation of successful Roma and Traveller inclusion policies, paying due attention to persons in particularly vulnerable situations.
In particular, the ADI-ROM is instructed to complete the following deliverables:
- Mid-term review report on the implementation of the Strategic Action Plan for Roma and Traveller Inclusion (2020-2025).
- Draft Recommendation on equality for Roma and Traveller women and girls 31/12/2023.
- Capacity-building programme and tools supporting the implementation of Recommendation CM/Rec(2020)2 at national level.
- Feasibility study and possible draft Recommendation on desegregation and inclusion policies and practices in the field of education including Roma and Traveller children.
- Handbook on democratic governance as well as representation and participation of Roma and Travellers in public and political life.
- Final evaluation report on the implementation of the Strategic Action Plan for Roma and Traveller Inclusion 2020-2025.
- At least two thematic reports per year, emanating from the two, possibly three, thematic visits foreseen per year (to be adopted by ADI-ROM and transmitted to CDADI for discussion and follow-up).
Under the authority of the Committee of Ministers, and of the European Committee on Crime Problems (CDPC) and the Steering Committee on Anti-Discrimination, Diversity and Inclusion (CDADI), the PC/ADI-CH is instructed to complete the following deliverable:
- Draft comprehensive Recommendation on combating hate crime including its investigation and victim
support, building on the case law of the European Court of Human Rights and drawing upon existing
Council of Europe texts.
Under the authority of the Committee of Ministers and as a subordinate body to the Steering Committee on Anti-Discrimination, Diversity and Inclusion (CDADI), the ADI-INT is instructed to complete the following deliverables:
- Subject to the adoption of a Recommendation on multilevel policies and governance for intercultural integration, a capacity-building programme and tools for migrant integration supporting its implementation at national level.
- Feasibility study and possible new legal and/or benchmarking instrument on comprehensive strategies for inclusion.
During the biennium 2020/2021, the Committee of Experts on Combating Hate Speech (ADI/MSI-DIS) had the specific task of preparing a draft recommendation by the Committee of Ministers on a comprehensive approach to addressing hate speech, including in the context of an online environment, within a human rights framework building on the case law of the European Court of Human Rights and drawing upon existing Council of Europe texts and the legacy of the No Hate Speech Movement Youth Campaign, as well as possible practical tools to give guidance to member states and other stakeholders in this area.
The ADI/MSI-DIS was a joint body, which was sub-ordinated to two steering committees, the Steering Committee on Anti-Discrimination, Diversity and Inclusion (CDADI) and the Steering Committee on Media and Information Society (CDMSI). Due to the complex nature of hate speech as a phenomenon that must be addressed from the freedom of expression angle as well as from the perspective of non-discrimination and inclusion, experts from both sides worked together towards one effective and comprehensive approach.
The draft recommendation will be published in the section “Documents”, as soon as it is available for the public.
