Great news from Brussels

The European Commission has issued its assessment of the National Roma Integration Strategies (NRIS): Communication from the Commission – Assessing the implementation of the EU Framework for National Roma Integration Strategies and the Council Recommendation on Effective Roma integration measures in the Member States 2016.

A project initiated by the Slovak Republic, replicated by the Czech Republic and brought to the European level, aims to promote the efforts by individuals and organisations in improving the situation of Roma. The project also promotes a positive image of Roma, Roma culture and contributes to the elimination of stereotypes and prejudices against Roma. The Roma Spirit Awards are given in categories such as non-profit/non-state organisations company/employer/firm, city/municipality, individual, media and good deed of the year.
