ERRC reports about the EU Roma Framework articulated by the European Commission. The commission devoted lots of attention to Roma civil society building and funds invested to the human capital in such areas as employment, education, social inclusion, health care, health promotion, even housing, but it still remains a challenge. On the other hand, EU Commission is criticized for an inadequate response to anti-Gypsyism and hate speeches which are compared to a ‘habit’ in EU Member States as it is so deeply enrouted. The violence against Roma communities and their social exclusion still continue as attack cases in Bulgaria have shown. The commission aims to develop tools to fight discrimination, racism, and xenophobia, and it requires proper legislation and targeted actions.
