Communities all over Europe have taken ownership for receiving and including newcomers.

    Join us at the Social Innovation for Refugee Inclusion Seminar, to reflect on these new dynamics in European societies through workshops, plenary sessions and match-making sessions.

    When it comes to Roma issues, the gender dimension has long been neglected. However, women have an essential role in Roma society and ensuring their participation is a key element in improving their situation. Romani women across Europe often face discrimination on multiple fronts: racism for being Roma, as well as gender discrimination.

    It is not possible to speak about the inclusion of Roma if half of their community has little or no opportunity to express their needs and make their voice heard. Roma inclusion policy needs Roma women activists and advocates. The gender dimension can also play an important role in the success of National Roma Integration Strategies (NRISs).

    Recent events have shown that the European Union lack adequate instruments to safeguard the rule of law and human rights, the values stipulated in Article 2 TEU. The EU verifies compliance with these values in the run-up to EU accession, however no similar mechanism apply after EU accession.

    The EESC believes that the EU should consider adopting a new European mechanism on the rule of law to improve European governance by establishing a ‘policy coordination cycle’, which would be similar and complementary to the European Semester.
