This study provides a review of the EU Framework for national Roma integration strategies (NRIS) up to 2020. It was produced at the request of the European Parliament's Committee for Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) and Committee for Employment and Social Affairs (EMPL) to feed into the discussions regarding the post-2020 framework. The study provides a synthesis of evaluations and opinions of the EU Framework for NRIS, focusing both on the architecture of this instrument and on the national policy measures that have been put in place in the main policy areas under the framework. It furthermore provides an appreciation of the coordination, consultation and monitoring structures under the framework and the way they work in practice. It also looks at the framework's interplay with other EU legal, funding and policy instruments. It then reviews the main policy objectives and the effect the framework has had on anti-discrimination and anti-gypsyism.
