Council of Europe/Nikolai Atefie

In view of International Roma Day on 8 April which brings attention to challenges Roma people continue to face in Europe, Herwig van Staa, President of the Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of the Council of Europe, underlined the responsibility of local and regional authorities to provide inclusive Roma policies. “As local and regional authorities, we are also responsible for ensuring that the universal human rights of all our citizens, including the Roma, are equally respected, and that this community can fully participate in the life of their cities and regions. The Alliance of Cities and Regions for Roma Inclusion, which was launched on 20 March 2013, has been set up for this purpose”, he stated.
