Making use of European Structural and Investment Funds for Roma Inclusion : A Guide for Local Authorities

The guide should be seen in the context of the emerging European Union (EU) policy framework embodied in the Europe 2020 Strategy, the EU Framework for National Roma Integration Strategies (NRIS), the current (2007‐2013) and future (2014‐2020) programming period for ESIF (European Structural and Investment Funds).

It complements the EURoma Network guide Tackling Roma needs in the 2014‐2020 Structural Funds Programming Period.

This guide aims to improve the planning process by shifting the focus from the national and regional planning processes of Partnership Agreements and Operational Programmes to local planning for effective interventions with Roma by using ESIF.
