Second European Union Minorities and Discrimination Survey Roma – Selected findings

Some 80% of Roma surveyed live below their country’s at-risk-of-poverty threshold; every third Roma lives in housing without tap water; every third Roma child lives in a household where someone went to bed hungry at least once in the previous month; and 50% of Roma between the ages of six and 24 do not attend school. This EU-MIDIS II report underscores an unsettling but unavoidable reality: the European Union’s largest ethnic minority continues to face intolerable discrimination and unequal access to vital services.

Working with Roma: Participation and empowerment of local communities

Bringing together local authorities and residents, especially Roma, it investigated what aspects work, which ones do not, and why this is the case.
