Andrej Belak is on the 8th and 9th of October 2018 attending European Platform for Roma inclusion: Health and housing inequalities endured by Roma in Brussels as an invited expert from the academia.
This gathering of policy makers and other stakeholders from Europe provides for an opportunity to discuss on how to advance the efforts in social and economic inclusion of the Roma people.
The thematic focus of this 12th Platform meeting will be on inequalities endured by Roma in the areas of health and housing, two out of four crucial areas of the EU Framework for National Roma Integration Strategies up to 2020. All Member States have committed to this framework which was established in 2011 with a view to closing the gaps between marginalised Roma communities and the general population.
Workshops and political debate
Two parallel workshops devoted to Roma inequalities in the areas of health and housing will take place on 9th October, in the morning. For that purpose, the EU umbrella Roma and pro Roma NGOs have prepared a background document.
The workshops will be followed by two exchange dialogues with various stakeholders, representing EU institutions, Member State’s governments, Roma NGOs, academia, etc.
