BRINGING THE EU CLOSE TO ROMA: WEAVING ROMA CULTURE INTO THE FABRIC OF SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT by ERIACNET4EU.
In the frame of the Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values Programme (CERV) of the European Union, ERIAC is leading the initiative ERIACNET4EU! 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. ERIAC and its wide and distinguished membership together with an alliance of donors- and partner organizations feed expertise, specific know-how, and reliable methodologies to support the implementation of the new framework.
The radicality, progressive and professional quality of this initiative lies within the responsibility and leadership Roma took for 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!
In the month of April 2023, ERIAC prepared a line of high-quality public events to celebrate Roma pride, self-determination and contribution to European and national histories and cultures.
On April 22, 2023 ERIACNET4EU presents:
