Call for proposals limited/restricted to National Roma Contact Points


The aim of this Call is to advance the institutional development and capacity of the National Roma Contact Points for Roma equality, inclusion and participation (NRCPs) in their role of facilitating national consultation processes, particularly through reforming and strengthening their established National Roma Platforms (NRPs). NRPs purpose is to promote and facilitate dialogue, mutual learning, cooperation and policy review among all national stakeholders (e.g. Roma and pro-Roma civil society organizations, activists, elected and appointed officials in public administration, academia, etc.). Within the context of the NRPs, the NRCPs are also expected to boost
in a gender-sensitive way the representation of Roma people in the platform structures, including women and youth, as well as by nominating a Roma representative to ensure the link between National and the European Roma Platforms.

Detailed Call Description

National Roma Platforms aim to:

  • support National Roma Contact Points in their task of coordinating and monitoring the implementation of the national Roma strategic framework on equality, inclusion and participation;
  • support the NRCPs in their task to mobilise and ensure the continued engagement in outcome-oriented efforts and processes of all relevant stakeholders (i.e. high level public authorities, Roma and non-Roma civil society organisations, activists and professionals from various areas of relevance, elected and appointed Roma officials, entrepreneurs, trade unions, employers’ and children’s rights organisations, academia, etc.), in particular by providing a forum and encouraging self-mobilisation and cooperation of Roma and pro-Roma civil society organisations;
  • strengthen multi-stakeholder accountability, ownership and transparency of the process of Roma equality, inclusion and participation;
  • boost the commitment of the NRCPs and relevant stakeholders to an effective implementation of measures promoting Roma equality, inclusion and participation at national and local level, improving equal access of Roma to mainstream services and opportunities and strengthening mutual trust and
    understanding between Roma and non-Roma;
  • complement and increase synergies with other EU and/or national initiatives, such as the European Platform for Roma inclusion and the Roma Civil Monitoring initiative; etc. (further details in the work programme)
