ROMACTEDII Call for Proposals: Support Organisations

Within the framework of the Joint European Union/ Council of Europe Programme ROMACTED Phase II on “Promoting good governance and Roma empowerment at local level”, the Call for Proposals for the Support Organisations is now published.

The Joint European Union/ Council of Europe ROMACTEDII Programme will be a natural follow-up to the implementation of Phase I of the ROMACTED Programme in the Western Balkans and Turkey (2017-2020), which will serve to consolidate and expand efforts to improve the integration of Roma populations in local communities through enhanced participation in local policymaking and implementation of local actions. ROMACTEDII will continue to assist the local authorities to integrate Roma specific dimensions/measures into the mainstream local policies, action plans related to these policies, budgets and public service delivery, thereby enhancing democratic participation and empowerment of local Roma communities.

The Council of Europe will be assisted in the implementation of the ROMACTEDII Programme in the Beneficiary by a Support Team. This Support Team will comprise a Support Organisation, Focal Point and the Thematic Consultants and Facilitators selected through this Call for Tenders. In order to achieve the objectives of the programme, the ROMACTED methodology, which is outlined in the ROMACTED Handbook, will be followed.

For additional reading, please note that the ROMACTED methodology is a combination of the ROMED2 and ROMACT methodologies which are available online as follows: ROMED2 Guidelines for National and Local Facilitators and ROMACT Handbook.
