Robbing the Roma

In the last year and a half, the Roma’s suffering has increased, and intolerance has intensified – especially in the countries with the largest Romani populations. The European Commission must take stronger action to change social policies in those EU countries that ignore, harm, or isolate Roma.

BUDAPEST – A year and a half has passed since the European Commission adopted the EU Framework for National Roma Integration Strategies up to 2020, which calls upon European Union governments to create comprehensive plans aimed at strengthening social inclusion and improving the well-being of their Romani citizens. The European Council endorsed the framework soon after. But, despite good intentions, little has changed.
