The European Platform for Roma inclusion is an important forum for concerted actions of all relevant stakeholders for the economic and social inclusion of Roma people in Europe. The platform contributes to making both European and national policies more sensitive to Roma needs.

The 2017 European Platform for Roma inclusion will be dedicated to discussions on the challenges related to the transition of Roma children and youth from education to employment. Given the complexity of the topic, discussions at the next Platform will take place in two thematic workshops:

  • 1st workshop: issues related primarily to the education perspective
  • 2d workshop: employment perspective

This year’s edition will include political debates with the presence of Commissioner Jourová, politicians from various Member States, members of the European Parliament, and various high-level representatives of the European and other institutions.
