National Roma Contact Points meet at FRA

FRA will host a National Roma Contact Points (NRCP) Workshop on Roma Integration Indicator and reporting template on 10-11 June in Vienna.
It will bring together 22 Member States' National Roma Contact Points, the European Commission and representatives from national statistical offices. The aim of the workshop is to assist Member States with the practical application of the framework and in particular, to discuss the various approaches to data collection that might be applicable in specific contexts in individual Member States.

The workshop will also discuss how the indicators framework could be applied in countries with limited possibilities of generating or using data disaggregated by ethnicity. This includes looking at alternative data collection methods. FRA and the NRCPs will explore ways of cooperating and will identify the areas of future support the Member States might need in filling out the Structure-Process-Outcome Indicators template developed by the Roma Working Party.
