The 2nd meeting of the Council of Europe Dialogue with Roma and Traveller Organisations (2-3 June 2016) focused on the causes and challenges of internal and cross-border migration of Roma and Travellers as well as the issue of hate speech directed against them, with a view to finding possible solutions.

The meeting combined plenary sessions and panel discussions in order to provide all stakeholders – experts, civil society organisations, member States, monitoring mechanisms and other Council of Europe Secretariat sectors – with adequate space for exchange and joint reflection.

Some 25 representatives of international, national and local Roma and Traveller NGOs from Council of Europe member States participated in this meeting.
