EU Parliament adopts a Resolution underlining the key role of the Alliance in favoring effective Roma inclusion
The European Parliament, at its Plenary Session held on 12th December 2013, adopted a resolution on the implementation of the national Roma integration strategies (2013/2924(RSP). In its paragraph 11, the Parliament “urges the Member States to involve local and regional authorities in reviewing, managing, implementing and monitoring their national strategies, and to assist and support the local and regional authorities in the measures they need to undertake for the realisation of Roma inclusion under all four pillars of the NRIS, as well as in implementing anti-discrimination measures”. In paragraph 26, it also “reminds the Member States that good practices, such as Roma mediators’ programmes and the European Alliance of Cities and Regions for Roma Inclusion implemented by the Council of Europe, are successful on the ground, which should encourage Member States to show more political determination in favour of the effective inclusion of Roma”.
