Current issues:


Europe & Balkans

The Roma community in Europe and Balkan countries faces significant challenges, with approximately 80% of Roma living in poverty. This marginalization is due to a combination of factors, including discrimination, lack of access to education and employment opportunities, and inadequate housing conditions. Despite efforts by governments and NGOs to address these issues, the Roma community continues to face significant barriers to social and economic inclusion.


Europe & Balkans

The housing situation in Roma communities in parts of Europe and Balkan countries is often characterized by overcrowding, poor living conditions, and inadequate access to basic services such as water and sanitation. Many Roma families live in informal settlements or substandard housing, often without legal tenure or access to basic infrastructure. This situation is exacerbated by discrimination and exclusion from mainstream housing markets, making it difficult for Roma families to improve their living conditions.


Europe & Balkans

The employment situation for Roma in Europe and Balkan countries is challenging, with many facing significant barriers to accessing decent work. Discrimination and prejudice against Roma individuals are widespread, leading to exclusion from the labor market and limited access to education and training opportunities. Many Roma individuals work in informal or precarious jobs, which often lack basic labor protections and social security benefits.


Europe & Balkans

Roma individuals face multiple barriers to accessing healthcare, including discrimination, language barriers, and lack of awareness about available services. As a result, many Roma individuals experience poorer health outcomes than the general population, with higher rates of chronic diseases, infant mortality, and infectious diseases.
