  • The “Preparatory Action – Roma Civil Monitoring – Strengthening capacity and involvement of Roma and pro-Roma civil society in policy monitoring and review“ (Roma Civil Monitor 2021-2025 initiative) is implemented by a consortium led by the Democracy Institute of the Central European University (DI/CEU), and including European Roma Grasroots Organisations Network (ERGO Network)Fundación Secretariado Gitano (FSG) and European Roma Rights Centre (ERRC).
    This initiative is launched by the European Commission at the initiative of the European Parliament and it is funded by the European Commission’s Directorate-General Justice and Consumers (DG Just).

    This initiative is a follow-up to the Roma Civil Monitor pilot project 2017-2020 and aims at involving at least 90 Roma and pro-Roma civil society organisations and individuals from 26 EU Member States (Malta is not included) in monitoring and reporting mainly on the Member States’ national Roma strategic frameworks (NRSF) but also other policies concerning Roma.
    The initiative will contribute to building the capacity of the national Roma and pro-Roma civil societies and will provide them with systematic support in engaging in the dialogue, advocacy and cooperation with national stakeholders.

    In line with the EU Roma Strategic Framework for Equality, Inclusion and Participation for 2020-2030, the aim of the Roma Civil Monitor 2021-2025 initiative is to build capacities of Roma civil society organisations to contribute to the monitoring of national strategies by applying a bottom-up methodology based on local knowledge and experience to influence national decisions that effectively reflect the Roma communities’ needs.

    To contribute to this aim, the Roma Civil Monitor will:

    • empower Roma and pro-Roma civil society to enable it to participate in monitoring and reporting on the implementation of national Roma strategic frameworks, action plans and other policies, in order to effectively reflect the Roma communities' needs.
    • facilitate constructive dialogue and equal partnership between Roma and pro-Roma civil society, national Roma contact points, equality bodies as well as other stakeholders to reflect the needs and the interests of the Roma.
    • produce and disseminate reports concerning civil society's perspective and assessment on the implementation of national Roma strategic frameworks, mainstream policy measures or relevant new developments with significant impact on Roma.
