Abstract

Sinti and Roma civil society: Germany must ban antigypsyism in social services and guarantee social rights

January 20, 2020

The recently-released second Roma Civil Monitor (RCM) report on Germany has reviewed various measures of social policy that Sinti and Roma in particular might benefit from. While the EU Framework for the Member States’ National Roma Integration Strategies has not changed federal policy in Germany (there is no national-level NRIS), it has been used to encourage the adoption of policies intended to positively impact Roma and Sinti at the local and regional levels.

Diverse, inclusive workplace for the Roma and for others

One of the final outputs of the 3-year long Bridge to business project is a guide prepared for corporate partners on the practical examples learned about corporate diversity processes so organizations can learn from each other's successes and failures and improve their effectiveness in the inclusion of disadvantaged employees with various backgrounds.

Issues that hinder Roma inclusion and have not been effectively considered or addressed by national Roma inclusion strategies so far are in the focus of the Roma Civil Monitor’s third reporting cycle. More than 90 civil society organisations and experts from 27 EU Member States are analysing public policies or their absence and will report on the “blind spots”; the reports will be available by mid-2020.
