European Commission calls on Member States to implement national plans for Roma integration

On 23 May 2012, the European Commission called on Member States to implement national plans for Roma integration.

Member States developed these plans in response to the Commission’s EU Framework for national Roma integration strategies.

The EU Framework identifies four pillars where national efforts to improve the integration of Roma are required: access to education, jobs, healthcare and housing. For the first time, all Member States committed to developing an integrated approach across these four policy areas and delivered national strategies to address these priority areas.
