As part of an increasing focus on Roma communities the European Commission’s Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) commissioned a ‘Policy Cooperation and Innovation Roma Multilateral project’ through the Lifelong Learning Programme. The objective of the project is to support the creation of transnational cooperation projects to develop lifelong learning measures for Roma integration, joining up educational and other social measures such as health, employment and housing. Furthermore, the programme aims to raise participation and attainment levels of Roma students in education and VET (Vocational Education and Training). This study represents the research component of a larger project funded as part of the above programme. The project was led by the BHA for Equality (BHA) in the United Kingdom (UK) in collaboration with Manchester City Council International New Arrivals, Travellers and Supplementary Schools Team in the UK, Fundación Secretariado Gitano in Spain and Pharos in the Netherlands. The project focused specifically on newly arriving Roma in the partner countries. This refers to Roma who have migrated to partner countries in more recent years – particularly following the accession of a number of Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries – rather than focusing on long established or indigenous Roma populations.
