The NGO coalition called “EU Roma Policy Coalition” released a statement on the eve of the EU’s first ‘Roma Summit’ urging the EU to devise a long-term strategy to respect and protect the fundamental rights of Roma people. They call on the Summit to commit to common standards and targets for achieving real progress. (For more information on the summit please see our earlier report here.) Members of the coalition – among others – include Amnesty International, the European Roma Rights Center, The Roma Education Fund and Open Society Institute.
