Roma integration in Croatia

For the 2014-2020 period, Croatia will receive a total of €8 billion in EU funds, out of which €5.8 billion will come from the European Social Fund (ESF) and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). Of this amount, at least 24.6% will be spent on the ESF, with 20% of that going to the promotion of social inclusion and combating poverty. The latter could also finance Roma-related measures.

Slovak MP insulted Romani people and spread xenophobia, loses his seat after being convicted of felony defamation

Milan Mazurek, an MP for the fascist "Kotleba-People's Party Our Slovakia" (Kotleba-Lidová strana Naše Slovensko, or LSNS), has lost his seat in Slovakia's unicameral legislature.

On 3 September the Supreme Court upheld a lower court verdict finding that the xenophobic remarks Mazurek had made on a radio program constituted a felony.

According to the Slovak media, Mazurek is the first MP to lose a seat due to a conviction of any kind in Slovakia.

He faced charges over remarks he made on a program broadcast by a private regional radio station in 2016, where he spoke about the alleged "inadaptability" of ethnic Roma in association with the committing of vandalism and violence, insulted them, and also alleged that Islamic migrants are associated with danger.

The first-instance court fined him EUR 5 000 for making those remarks. Both the MP and the prosecutor appealed that verdict.

Roma integration in Belgium

EU structural funds in Belgium are handled by 5 managing authorities at 3 levels of government (federal, regional and community). The federal operational programme is the only one with funding specifically earmarked for the Roma.

The Council of Europe estimates that there are approximately 30,000 Roma living in Belgium (0.29% of the population).

The main objectives of Belgium’s national strategy are to set up a Council for the Roma and Travellers, and a Roma helpdesk in the federal ministry for social inclusion.

In 2014 the Commission adopted its assessment on the progress made in the implementation of the national Roma integration strategies in the 4 key areas of education, employment, healthcare and housing, as well as in the fight against discrimination and the use of funding.

The national contact point for the national Roma integration strategy in Belgium is the interministerial working group on Roma inclusion.

The portfolio is under the responsibility of the Secretary of State for asylum and migration, social integration and the fight against poverty.
