Given that the economic empowerment of Roma men and women is one of the important tasks to which the state of Serbia should commit, the meeting focused on equal access to economic resources, better living conditions, poverty reduction, prevention of discrimination in employment and many other topics related to the position of the Roma national minority in Serbia and their everyday life.

Here you can read (in Serbian) agenda of the meeting and the binding actions that resulted from the conversations held before and during the meeting.

The event is supported by the Balkan Trust for Democracy and the Embassy of the Kingdom of Norway within the project “Social Dialogues”.
