Widespread Roma exclusion persists, find new surveys(23 May 2012)
The report: ‘The situation of Roma in 11 EU Member States: Survey results at a glance’ draws on surveys into the socio-economic situation of Roma and non-Roma living nearby in 11 EU Member States and in neighbouring European countries.
The report shows that in the 11 EU Member States surveyed, where the overwhelming majority of Roma EU citizens live, the situation in employment, education, housing and health is not satisfactory. On average it is worse than the situation of the non-Roma living close by. Roma also continue to experience discrimination and are not sufficiently aware of their rights guaranteed by EU law.
