ERIACNET4EU: ERIAC NETWORK TO ADVANCE ROMA INCLUSION BY COMBATTING AND PREVENTING ANTIGYPSYISM IN THE EU

#ERIACNET4EU

 

In the frame of the Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values Programme (CERV) of the European Union, ERIAC is launching a new project: ERIACNET4EU: ERIAC NETWORK TO ADVANCE ROMA INCLUSION BY COMBATTING AND PREVENTING ANTIGYPSYISM IN THE EU.

 

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

With the adoption of the new EU Roma Framework, the EU and its member states move towards implementation where expert advice as well as reliable partners on all levels of policy-making and implementation (local, regional, national, European) are needed.

ERIACNET4EU project will offer the expertise, specific know-how and reliable methodologies to support the implementation of the new framework.

ERIACNET4EU project aims at protecting, promoting and raising awareness of rights of Roma citizens of the EU and thereby at strengthening the EU values, in particular of equality, justice and non-discrimination and thus contributing to building a more democratic EU where all citizens can enjoy equal access and protection of their rights. It aims to do so by providing support to ERIAC network members, including civil society organizations active at local, regional and transnational level, to increase their capacities, establish channels of communication and participation with public authorities and EU institutions to ensure their active engagement in policy implementation and design targeting Roma. At the same time, it will result in providing informed, reliable, consolidated and quality input to European and national policy-makers and public institutions, to increase the effective implementation of strategies and laws that affect the lives of Roma in the EU.

 

ERIACNET4EU serves the following objectives:

  1. Ensure quality input to policy-making and policy-implementation at local, regional, national and EU levels through mutual learning and exchange of good practices among/ between ERIAC members as well as with other public and private stakeholders
  2. Awareness raising, information and dissemination activities
  3. Increasing capacities and knowledge-base of members and other stakeholders through training activities
  4. Growing the network and community outreach
