Call for Proposals in ROMACT Programme
New programme element offers support to municipalities in the field of intercultural mediation and working visits
The ROMACT Programme is a joint initiative of the Council of Europe and the European Commission to promote the integration of Roma at local level.
This call concerns a new component of the ROMACT programme which aims at assisting local authorities in better integrating marginalised people, in particular non-nationals of Roma ethnicity. This component supports capacity building and transnational cooperation activities.
This Call for proposals encompasses a range of options to allow applicants to devise an approach tailored to address their needs, within the scope of capacity-building and transnational cooperation. Possible actions are
- training of local authority staff in transcultural mediation
- training of transcultural mediators to be employed by the authority
- transnational working visits between local authorities.

Deadline: Deadline for applications is 29 April 2016 at 17:00 CET.
Municipalities are encouraged to indicate their interest even if they cannot satisfy the deadline - in all likelyhood, a new call will be launched later in 2016.
