ROMA INCLUDED: Can the SDGs contribute to combating antigypsyism?

Ahead of the 4th EU Roma Week, ERGO Network published a new discussion paper entitled   “ROMA INCLUDED: Can the Sustainable Development Goals contribute to combatting antigypsyism?”.

With this paper, ERGO Network intends to trigger the debate among Roma activists on how to engage with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). More than three years after the proclamation of the United Nation’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the SDGs can provide opportunities for advancing the inclusion of Roma and for countering antigypsyism. Almost all of the 17 global goals are closely connected to the needs of Roma communities – from accessing clean drinking water and affordable energy to quality education and employment, from reducing inequalities to peace, justice and strong institutions.

In order to use the opportunities the 2030 Agenda can provide, the Roma rights movement needs to become familiar with the SDGs, identify strategic entry points for advocacy and develop guidelines for local action.

We thank José Manuel Fresno, Stefan Meyer y Cristina Herranz from Fresno Consulting who drafted the paper and genuinely supported our aims with their expertise.
