On 16 September 2008, the European Commissions first EU Roma Summit will take place in Brussels, under the joint patronage of the Commission President Jos Manuel Barroso and the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

The Summit aims to promote a firm commitment to tackling concrete problems and to creating a better understanding of the situation of Roma across Europe. It will also help identify "policies that work" in promoting inclusion and highlighting the plight of Roma communities. The outcome of the discussions will be an important input for debates at EU level and for further action.
