Roma and Travellers have a long history of experiencing discrimination, persecution and exclusion in Europe. “Roma are still being deprived of their basic human rights in Europe”, as the European Parliament underlined in its 2019 resolution on the post-2020 Strategic EU Framework for National Roma Inclusion Strategies and the fight against anti-Gypsyism.
FRA conducts regular surveys on the fundamental rights situation of Roma in the EU. They provide evidence to EU institutions and Member States to help to fight discrimination and promote equal access to fundamental rights in the EU policy framework on Roma inclusion. The report and these country sheets add to this body of evidence by providing, for the first time, data on Roma and Travellers’ experiences of fundamental rights in practice in six countries that, to date, comparable survey research has not extensively covered, namely Belgium, France, Ireland, the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Policymakers can use the survey data to formulate and monitor responses at EU and national levels and to shape an EU policy framework on Roma inclusion.
Country sheets for the remaining four countries will be available in 2021.
