The Vademecum encourages concrete steps and comprehensive interventions that result in desegregation and integration of marginalized groups, among them Roma communities in five Making the Most countries. The Vademecum lists:
- the minimum criteria related to local level interventions based on evidence in the field;
- the needed background regulation and practical measures by the national states; and
- the further steps from the part of the EU in order to facilitate the implementation of the ERDF regulation.
The Vademecum is accompanied by a Supplementary Background Document that summarizes the technical details and experiences of Roma related housing programs and of the use of EU funds for marginalized Roma communities in the five MtM countries.
