Dezideriu Gergely, the executive director of the European Roma Rights Centre in Budapest stated that EU Member States have not used approximately 70 percent of the funding from the EU that is available to them in the period of 2007-2013 to help improve the lives of the Roma. These funds do not come from their state budgets. The evidence suggests that there is the lack of political will among some politicians to eliminate the inequalities that the Roma face. Member States have strategies to aid the Roma, but they vary widely in scope. Commenting on the report, Viviane Reding, the EU justice minister, stated that “we need more than strategies that exist on paper.�
