      Dear Colleagues,

      Minority Rights Group International (MRG) would like to invite you to
      attend a conference entitled "The European Union and the Roma" which
      will take place in Budapest, Hungary, 6 – 7 June 2006.

      The conference aims at bringing together policy-makers, civil
      servants, and experts from Roma NGOs and international organisations.

      Firstly, it will explore the relevance of EU legislation to Roma
      rights with the aim of identifying existing gaps in EU legislation and
      the legal developments that are necessary to adequately and
      comprehensively address the plight of Romani communities in Europe.

      Secondly, it will analyze the existing Roma policy framework at the
      European level with the aim of formulating recommendations for
      consistency and complimentarity between different initiatives
      targeting the Roma directly or indirectly.

      Finally, it will provide an overview and critical analysis of the
      existing channels for monitoring and evaluation of Roma policies and
      programmes as well as recommendations for more participatory
      monitoring and evaluation mechanisms.
