On the 6th of July 2011, "the EU Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth Androulla Vassiliou signed the first of two funding agreements, which will see the EU give €1 million Euros to the Council of Europe to help train 1000 mediators.
The deal is a financial boost to the Roma Mediator Training Programme (Romed) launched earlier this year by the Council of Europe. So far, 427 mediators have been trained."
