European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights: A persisting concern: anti-Gypsyism as a barrier to Roma inclusion (2018)
The report draws on hard data collected by the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights through its large-scale surveys conducted in 2016 and 2011 in those Member States where the majority of Roma live. This evidence shows that Member States’ investments to reduce Roma people’s poverty levels, improve their access to employment, ensure their right to adequate housing and quality education, and tackle anti-Gypsyism, did not achieve the goals set in the EU Framework of April 2011. The report also reviews the data from a global perspective. It looks at how Roma in EU countries fare compared to the general population with respect to select United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Focusing on a number of specific goals related to education, access to clean water and employment, our analysis highlights glaring inequalities within the EU between Roma and the general population.
