Pilot project - capacity building for Roma civil society and strengthening its involvement in the monitoring of national Roma integration strategies.
The objectives of this pilot project are to contribute to the creation and capacity building of local Roma civil society as well as a monitoring mechanism regarding Roma integration and inclusion in 27 EU Member States (Malta is not included).This includes in particular the production and dissemination of ‘shadow reports’ where civil society or NGO coalitions could supplement or present alternative information and data to the reports submitted by Member States concerning the implementation of their national Roma integration strategies. The monitoring shall focus on the local implementation of strategies in the 4 key areas (employment, education, housing and health), in the fields of anti-discrimination and gender equality and would also provide information on the level of involvement of civil society, the use of EU funds and mainstreaming of Roma inclusion measures under public education, employment, health and housing policies.
