Each event will be sponsored by one or more MEPs and co-organised by civil society organisations, and the European Parliament Anti-Racism and Diversity Intergroup. It will be an opportunity for policymakers, experts, activists and organisations to develop strategic and coherent responses to anti-Gypsyism. At the end of the week, a pledge will be presented where the undersigned MEPs will affirm that they will continue their fight against anti-Gypsyism.
