Roma Empowerment and Support for Inclusion report - Synthesis report of the Case Studies in Ghent, Belfast and Rome – Policy Recommendation



Roma Empowerment and Support for Inclusion Report - Synthesis report of the Case Studies in Ghent, Belfast and Rome summarizes the cross-national issues regarding Roma empowerment and support for inclusion with a specific focus on young children such as parenting support, access to quality early childhood services, awareness on Roma inclusion and importance of early childhood development and capacity building and agency of Roma actors. The policy recommendations presented in the publication are the result of the policy round table meeting organized by ISSA in partnership with Bernard van Leer Foundation in Brussels and they highlight different ways for breaking the barriers for inclusion such as existence of political will and finances; the role of mediators, comprehensive and strength based approach and  support to families. 

The case study is available in English.
