Roma rights

Discrimination against Roma and the marginalisation this has engendered clearly demonstrates the need for action to enhance Roma’s prospects of influencing the conditions under which they live. Discrimination means that the principle of equal rights and human dignity for all is not being upheld, and this is a serious democratic problem for society as a whole, not just for the groups or individuals it affects.

The report describes the Equality Ombudsman’s experience of promoting Roma rights, the aim being to determine how far this work has progressed and what further measures need to be taken.

Gender Identity and Gender Expression

As of 1 January 2009, discrimination on grounds of gender identity or gender expression is prohibited in Sweden.

Previous anti-discrimination legislation only protected the right of transsexuals not to be subjected to discrimination. The new ground of discrimination was introduced to ensure comprehensive protection against discrimination for all transpersons, including transvestites, intersexuals and intergender and transgender persons.

Sweden is the first country in the world to have introduced a legal ban on discrimination associated with gender identity or gender expression.
