Helping write new success stories for the Roma people

Organised under the patronage of Commissioner Vĕra Jourová, the European Platform for Roma inclusion contributes to making European and national stakeholders more sensitive to Roma needs but it is also the occasion to share Roma success stories, the kind of stories you don't find out about in the media and the kind of stories I am so keen on hearing and sharing.

As a matter of fact, a few months ago, I went to a very special event at the European Parliament, where I paid a tribute to my friend, Roma MEP Damian Draghici whose life story follows an exceptional integration pathway coming from the streets of his home city, through some of Romania’s and Europe’s most popular concert halls and eventually to the seats of the European Parliament.
