Decade of Roma Inclusion Secretariat publishes new civil society monitoring reports
We are pleased to inform you that the Decade of Roma Inclusion Secretariat Foundation released eight new civil society monitoring reports on the implementation of National Roma Integration Strategies (NRIS) and Decade of Roma Inclusion National Action Plans.
In 2013-2014, the Decade Secretariat and the Open Society Foundations supported the creation of civil society monitoring reports in eight countries: Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, France, Germany, Italy, Montenegro, Serbia, and the United Kingdom.
In the reports, civil society coalitions supplement or present alternative information to Decade Progress Reports submitted by Participating Governments in the Decade of Roma Inclusion and to any reports submitted by State parties to the European Commission on implementation of their NRIS. These reports are not meant to substitute for monitoring and quantitative evaluation by State authorities but to channel local knowledge into national and European policy processes and reflect on the quality and outcomes of government measures. The civil society reports provide additional data to official ones, proxy data where there is not official data, or alternative interpretation of published data.
The project is coordinated by the Decade of Roma Inclusion Secretariat Foundation in cooperation with Open Society Foundation’s Making the Most of EU Funds for Roma Program. Funding for the project comes from the OSF Roma Initiatives Office. The actual content of each report, however, is the responsibility of the authors of the report and does not necessarily reflect the views of the Decade Secretariat or of the OSF.
The civil society monitoring reports in English and national languages and a summary report in English and Romani are available at www.romadecade.org/civilsocietymonitoring
