Roma and Travellers living in western EU countries are less often in the
limelight than those living in central, eastern and southern EU countries.
While they represent a smaller proportion of the population in the west, they
also face problems with social exclusion, marginalisation and discrimination.
These country sheets present findings from the survey conducted by FRA in 2019
covering Roma and Travellers populations in Belgium, France, Ireland, the
Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom. The survey included interviews
with almost 4,700 Roma and Travellers, collecting information on more than
8,200 individuals living in their households.

anti-Gypsyism. It also outlines civil society efforts to tackle the diverse

In his latest video blog, FRA Director Michael O'Flaherty speaks about the devastating effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on the Roma community. Roma children are in danger of losing almost a whole year of schooling. It’s like losing a generation. It’s robbing children of the one place where they can have hope and dream the same dreams of every other child.

The year 2017 brought both progress and setbacks in terms of rights protection. The European Pillar of Social Rights marked an important move towards a more ‘social Europe’. But, as experiences with the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights underscore, agreement on a text is merely a first step. Even in its eighth year as the EU's binding bill of rights, the Charter's potential was not fully exploited, highlighting the need to more actively promote its use.
