ROMACT is a joint initiative of the Council of Europe and the European Commission that promotes the inclusion of Roma at local and regional level. This initiative will help building the capacity of local and regional authorities (targeting both elected officials and senior civil servants, but also in the mid-/long-term the Roma population and the population of pilot municipalities at large) to develop and implement strategies and policies for Roma inclusion.
Launched in May 2017, ROMACTED promotes the good governance and empowerment of Roma communities in more than 50 municipalities in the Western Balkans and Turkey. The aims of the programme are to:
- build up political will and sustained policy engagement of local authorities;
- empower Roma communities at individual and community level; and
- improve and expand the institutions’ commitment, capacity, knowledge and skills.
The EU/CoE Joint Project “Inclusive schools: making a difference for Roma children” (INSCHOOL), implemented in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, the Slovak Republic and the United Kingdom since May 2017, aims to enhance the social inclusion of Roma by promoting inclusive education policies and practices.
JUSTROM is a joint programme of the Council of Europe and European Commission aiming to improve the access to justice of Roma and Traveller women in Bulgaria, Greece, Ireland, Italy and Romania.
The Roma Youth Action Plan is a response of the Council of Europe to challenges faced by Roma young people in Europe, particularly in relation to their empowerment, participation in policy decision-making processes and structures at European level, and multiple realities of discrimination.
