Abstract:The EU has recognized that social exclusion of Roma must be addressed. The European Semester—a monitoring tool in the context of the Europe 2020 strategy—features the need for Roma inclusion reform implementation extensively. Yet, which difference does monitoring make in Roma inclusion reform implementation? This study is designed as a qualitative comparative multiple-case study assessing a selection of three EU Member States. The approach is descriptive and explanatory. Data is collected for a period of six years making use of yet understudied European Semester monitoring reports. The paper answer the following research question: How did European Semester monitoring affect the implementation of the EU policy on Roma inclusion in selected CEE states between 2011 and 2016? This study proposes that European Semester monitoring indeed has a beneficial effect on EU Roma policy. Acknowledging the need for an in-depth analysis of one of the most recent EU monitoring tools this meta-study analyses reform implementation monitoring pertaining to the inclusion of Roma in Central and Eastern Europe. Additionally this paper carves out the working mechanisms of European Semester monitoring chronology. This study finds that the extent to which European Semester Monitoring referred to Roma specifically had mixed effect on the implementation of Roma inclusion reforms in the analyzed countries between 2011 and 2016.
