EU Fundamental Rights Agency holds workshop on indicators of Romani integration
From 10-11 June the EU Fundamental Rights Agency convened a workshop in Vienna for its National Roma Contact Points (NRCPs) on the Roma Integration Indicator and a template for reporting on such indicators. The workshop was to bring together 22 Member States' National Roma Contact Points, the European Commission, and representatives from national statistical offices.
The aim of the workshop was to assist Member States with applying the indicators' framework in practice and to discuss various approaches to data collection that might be applicable in specific contexts. The workshop was also supposed to discuss how the indicators' framework could be applied in countries with limited possibilities of generating or using data disaggregated by ethnicity.
Alternative data collection methods were also slated to be reviewed. FRA and the NRCPs are supposed to explore ways of cooperating on this issue and identify areas of future support that the Member States might need to complete the template that has been developed for the collection of this data.
Results from FRA's 2011 survey on the Roma in the EU Member States can be reviewed here. The Fundamental Rights Agency provides expert advice to EU institutions and the Member States on how to best ensure that the fundamental rights of people living in the EU are protected.
