A persisting concern
Anti-Gypsyism as a barrier to Roma inclusion
Despite ambitious initiatives, the fundamental rights situation of Roma in the European Union (EU) remains profoundly troubling. The persisting phenomenon of anti-Gypsyism has proven to be a barrier to efforts to improve the life chances and living standards for Roma. Many continue to face discrimination, harassment and hate crime because of their ethnic origin. As a result, significant parts of the Roma population struggle with challenges – homes without running water or electricity, lack of health insurance, or even hunger – that one would believe no longer exist in the EU. This report... examines the persisting phenomenon of anti-Gypsyism and its effect on Roma inclusion efforts.
