European Roma Policy Coalition Statement on EU Social Agenda

04 July 2008

2 July 2008, Budapest, Brussels: Today, the European Roma Policy Coalition, of which the ERRC is a member, issued a statement highlighting the failure of the EU's Social Agenda, announced today, to propose any long term strategy aimed at Roma inclusion. In its statement, the ERPC called on the European Commission to devise an ambitious Framework Strategy matched by a Community Action Programme and supported by an institutional co-ordination mechanism with quantifiable targets and benchmarks; introduce an effective monitoring mechanism; and build upon current initiatives such as the Decade of Roma Inclusion, devised in close cooperation with member states and civil society.
