The Mid-term Review of the EU Roma Framework
With a few exceptions, it seems that the mid-term review of the EU Framework for National Roma Integration Strategies up to 2020 (hereinafter MT) received little attention in the “pro-Roma” social media space. In his ERRC blog post Is the EU Roma Framework f...

Investing in our future: What work(s) for young Roma

November 27, 2017, 9:00am - November 27, 2017, 5:30am

ERGO Network Public event Monday 27th November, Mundo B, Brussels 09:00 – 12:30, followed by networking lunch The agenda and a link to the registration site will follow soon! ergonetwork.org/2017/10/save-date-public-event-roma-youth-employment/ Concept: Equality of employment opportunities for young Roma is fair and just, but also a smart economic choice: It is an effective way to improve growth prospects and respond to the demographic challenge of rapidly ageing populations in EU Member States. Investing in young Roma breaks the cycle of poverty, discrimination and exclusion. It can yield high returns and can deliver the kind of lasting change that many policies and programs have so far failed to achieve. According to a Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA) survey, 19% of non-Roma and 58% of Roma aged 16 to 24 are not in employment, education or training. Different actors responsible for implementing employment policies and measures, like employment offices, training consultancies and education centers, are not equipped to reach out to Roma and/or are affected by antigypsyism. On average, 38% of Roma job seekers indicated that they were discriminated against because of their ethnicity at least once in the last 12 months when looking for work. For other groups, the rate of discrimination when looking for work was: 22% for Sub-Saharan Africans, 20% for North Africans, 12% for Turkish respondents, 11% for Central and East Europeans, and 8% for Russians and also for former Yugoslavians. At ERGO’s Public Event, we will present qualitative research done by ERGO members in five EU member states on youth employment measures and we will launch a campaign to mobilize support for investing in employment opportunities for young Roma. ERGO Network explored useful and promising employment measures and practices for young Roma in different kinds of contexts to inspire practitioners and policy makers to invest in employment opportunities for young Roma. For this, we invested in fact-finding to map barriers, opportunities and measures, exploring what employment opportunities for young Roma are realistic and fit with the local context. The campaign will be centered on views and messages of young Roma themselves. We aim to convince decision-makers to support employment of young Roma and break the stigma that Roma do not want to or cannot work. The campaign aims to make clear that young Roma want to work and can have opportunities, if sufficient investment is done and if they receive the right support.
