‘Play for Inclusion’ Handbook

‘Play for Inclusion’ Handbook

Professional development is key to the quality and impact of any ECEC service. Professionals working with refugee children need appropriate knowledge, competencies, and skills to build safe environments and promote the integration and well-being of distressed children and their caregivers.

The ‘Play for Inclusion’ Handbook is a new resource for practitioners who work in non-formal early childhood education and care (ECEC) services supporting the integration and psychosocial well-being of young refugee children and their caregivers. Read here for more information.

The Handbook is available in English and Slovak. Translations in Ukrainian and other languages will be available soon.

Roma in 10 European Countries – Main results

This report presents findings from FRA’s 2021 survey on Roma in Croatia, Czechia, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Portugal, Romania and Spain, as well as in North Macedonia and Serbia. The survey includes interviews with more than 8,400 Roma, collecting information on more than 20,000 individuals living in their households. By focusing on Roma, the survey provides unique data and information that are not available from European general population surveys, which do not disaggregate on grounds of ethnic origin. The findings present a bleak but familiar picture of exclusion, deprivation, discrimination and racism.

Key findings

  1. Manifestations of antigypsyism: Discrimination, harassment and violence
  2. Poverty and social exclusion
  3. Reporting discrimination, awareness of rights and trust in public institutions
  4. Education
  5. Employment
  6. Health
  7. Housing
