MESSAGES COMING FROM THE PUBLIC EVENT
‘COUNTERING SHRINKING SPACE FOR ROMA CIVIL SOCIETY’

On 29 November 2016, ERGO network organised a public event to discuss
the ‘Shrinking space of Roma civil society’ which was co-hosted by MEPs
Terry Reintke (Greens/EFA) and Tomáš Zdechovský (EPP). Over 80 people
participated in the meeting. One of the conclusions is that there is a squeeze on available funding for work that is not strictly oriented to the provision of social services: advocacy, watchdog work, civil monitoring, community empowerment and activism. That shrinking space of civil society is a trend in Europe, but hits hard on Roma organisations, as they are scarcely equipped and often struggling for survival
