In the context of the fourth EU Roma Week in the European Parliament, and the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, the first stocktaking event ever that will focus on the state-of-play and efforts to advance at EU- and State-level the fight against anti-Gypsyism through truth, recognition, remedy, trust and reconciliation processes will take place in on 20-21 March.
