Recently, the EU implemented various social initiatives to include Roma people in society. Such efforts have shown modest but persistent results. These programs should be renewed and strengthened in order to produce better results. Either way, the Roma deserve a place in European society, and each country should allow for that development.
Unfortunately, the European Union's Roma social inclusion funding is failing the entire region. Roma still face persecution and exclusion everywhere they go. More needs to be done to help these people integrate into society. Otherwise, these problems will continue on for the foreseeable future without pause, which is a major issue.
No, Roma social inclusion funding by the EU has not been a success, because there continue to be problems with the Roma integration. No amount of funding can force people to be nice to each other. Basic laws about private property rights and against discrimination are the best things that the EU can do for the Roma people.
I'm sure you've heard the phrase you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink. No matter what the European Union does with the Roma, social inclusion is not going to happen. They don't want it to happen. They don't want to assimilate. They want to be different, they want to be the other.
The Roma social inclusion funding by the EU is not a success. The funding needs to focus on fixing the mistakes that were made and try to fix them. It will take a long time before we can call it a success but so far everything that was done for them has not gone the way that they wanted it to.
