Binding EU standards to integrate Europe's largest minority

Europe’s 10-12 million Roma should benefit from binding minimum standards at EU level to improve their access to employment, education, housing and healthcare, says Parliament in a resolution adopted on March, 9th 2011.

The resolution, which seeks to influence the Commission’s upcoming strategy for Roma inclusion, also calls for better protection of fundamental rights and use of EU funding.
