Good practices

The Support Team of the SRSG for Roma Issues will include in the database transferrable, innovative, long-term impact-oriented projects that have been identified as good practices through cross-cutting assessments, including by beneficiaries, and validated as such by the Council of Europe or other national or international partners.

Policies, strategy and action plans

This heading provides access to policies, strategies and action plans targeting the inclusion and improvement of the situation of the Roma, as well as information on thematic measures taken by authorities in this area. The fact that the member states referred to have adopted such policies justifies their inclusion within the good practices database, although caution is advisable with regard to the implementation and actual impact of these measures. Taken separately, they will appear, if applicable, under the heading "good practices".
