Event description

Following its resolution from April 29, 2005, which acknowledged the discrimination and substandard living conditions faced by Roma in Europe, the European Parliament forwarded a series of recommendations asking the Commission to “raise the Roma issue to a pan-European level.” The conference on Roma Diplomacy provided a forum where European level civil servants, diplomats, politicians and Roma rights activists exchanged views towards this goal. The conference examined options and strategies, and prepared a list of recommendations for European institutions. This conference was part of the Roma Diplomacy project.
