Discrimination against Romanies in Sweden

A report on the DO project in the years of 2002 and 2003 on counteracting and forestalling ethnic discrimination against Romanies

The report shows that there is very little awareness in the Swedish majority society of Romanies and their living conditions. Also among those authorities, whose task it is to investigate, counteract and forestall discrimination, awareness and insights are insufficient. There is a lack of awareness of the underlying causes of the
Romany situation, of the roles played by the state and the majority society throughout history, and of how this links with the discrimination of today.
