Roma rights

Discrimination, paths of redress and how the law can improve the situation of Roma

This report analyses both what the Equality Ombudsman has learned in the course of its work and the available data concerning Roma’s access to rights on equal terms. It is important to reflect both on the limitations of current legal tools and on the opportunities they afford, and also to discuss which supplementary measures will be necessary in the coming years. Below, we discuss the measures that will be required if the law is to be even more effective in ensuring Roma rights.
