Roma grassroots perspectives on poverty alleviation:
Impact of access to quality education and employment as well as antigypsyism on Roma people’s economic situation
The topic of the case studies was how access to quality education and employment as well as antigypsyism affect Roma people’s economic situation.
This synthesis report can serve as evidence concerning implementation of the EU Roma Framework and mainstream social policies on the grassroots level, which can support the EU institutions’ work on making the European Pillar of Social Rights a reality. The main objective is to fill the gap and bring more perceptions of Roma into Roma-related discourses. Therefore ERGO members explored Roma people’s perspectives on the causes of poverty that can potentially say more about barriers to poverty reduction efforts and implementation of the National Roma Integration Strategies and social policies (if any). Fostering participation of Roma in voicing their needs and positions about what causes their economic situation is crucial for our work.
