Description

EUROCITIES WG Roma Inclusion is meeting in Braga, on 24-26 September, to discuss on 'how to develop an effective integrated city plan for Roma inclusion.

Theme of the meeting

Braga has been developing an integrated plan of Action for Diasadvantaged Communities (PAICD) and developed actions for Roma inclusion which they plan to integrate into a new project.

To help the city prepare the scaling up of the practice, EUROCITIES is organising a critical friend review. City experts are invited to come to Braga to discover the plan and the activities, understand the context and conduct interviews with beneficiaries and practitioners. Based on these, they will analyse the strengths and elements to improve in Braga's practice. By providing a critical friend feedback, they will also help the host city formulate concrete actions to develop a plan for Roma inclusion in a new neighbourhood.
