The Roma

We find it unacceptable that the situation for the European Roma community is constantly worsening. We want to see a clear action plan on ways to diminish the social exclusion of Roma people while simultaneously working to find ways to support them and increase their inclusion in society, such as improving educational opportunities, tackling racism and poverty, and giving Roma people more of a voice, politically and socially.

There is a clear need for a European Roma strategy that goes beyond the current national strategies to make it effective across borders. The S&Ds also want to see serious and fundamental improvements in national Roma strategies, including benchmark goals and effective tools for measuring levels of anti-gypsy discrimination and countering its effects across Europe.
