EUobserver reports that the European Commission is preparing a new post-2020 EU policy on Roma inclusion as part of a major policy framework, "A Strong Social Europe for Transition". This new EU Roma inclusion policy is scheduled to take effect in the final quarter of 2020.

The coronavirus has now led to the cancellation - along with hundreds of other events - of the European Parliament's planned Roma Week beginning 23 March. Civil society can still participate in designing the EU Framework through a public feedback process at DG Justice until 16 March.

The post-2020 guidance was also meant to be a major topic of the 2020 EU Romani Week at the European Parliament. The full article is available here.
