The European Parliament (Strasbourg)
The European Parliament has expressed concern over the recent French measures against the Roma and invited all the Member States to respect EU law. In order to build an inclusive society in which people can live together in harmony, it is of fundamental importance to achieve “a comprehensive approach at EU level in the form of an EU Roma Strategy based on the undertakings given at the Second European Roma Summit in Cordoba”.
