The SERCo project aims to address the problem of social and economic inclusion of Roma communities in the partner countries by applying the concept of social economy as an innovative solution to reducing the risk of poverty and to enhancing entrepreneurship.

The project promotes social economy as an effective instrument for integrated development of the Roma communities by:

1) analyzing the potential of applying social economy practices within Roma communities, from a social, economic and institutional point of view;
2) engaging policy-makers and civil servants and training Roma mediators for developing social enterprises; and
3) assisting Roma social business initiatives and promoting social economy within Roma communities and to the general public.

The Honour Ambassadors against Shame Practices-HASP project adopts a gender-based approach and aims to contribute to the combat of Honour related violence (HRV) against women in the UK, Bulgaria, Greece, Italy and Spain, which constitute highly differentiated settings in geographical, social and cultural terms and, within which, the HRV incidents recorded are also highly differentiated, due to a number of various factors.

The HASP project aims at the combat and prevention of HRV practices against women, ranging from forced marriage to so-called “honour crimes”.

The gender pay gap (GPG) is the difference between men’s and women’s pay, based on the average difference in gross hourly earnings of all employees. Despite decades of anti-discrimination laws and changes in the policies of companies and businesses worldwide, women are still not earning as much as men do in the workplace. The GPG is a complex problem calling for multi-level solutions. Major factors leading to GPG are: Discrimination in the workplace, workplace practices and pay systems, undervaluation of women’s work and skills, few women in senior and leadership positions, gender roles and traditions and the need to balance work and family responsibilities. The zeroGPG project addresses the GPG issue, using a trans-national approach with different stakeholder types, such as NGOs, women counseling centers and research institutions that work together to contribute to tackle pay inequalities.
