Antigypsyism remains a key challenge for the Roma, hindering their prospects. The new EU Roma strategic framework foresees cutting the proportion of Roma experiencing discrimination by at least half by 2030.  The hearing will look at the current situation with regard to antigypsyism, discussing measures foreseen in the national strategic frameworks aimed to tackle antigypsyism and possible responses to this problem.
