Governance / Political Participation
Since the end of 2015, and within the framework of the Thematic Action Plan on the inclusion of Roma and Travellers (2016-2019), the Council of Europe has developed training sessions (Roma Political Schools) for Roma citizens having the potential to stand for election at local level, in order to bring Roma closer to local decision-making bodies and to promote their active participation in local administration.
