Roma Citizenship Issues 

The issues concerning Roma are numerous, the single largest minority in Europe has been marginalized for centuries. Many Roma now suffer from lack of economical perspective, low employment and educational levels, health care problems and outright discrimination and hatred.

citizenship issues for romaWhile Roma have a claim to equal citizenship they face many obstacles: they are often uneducated, lack insight in political and decision making processes, have low internet and media skills and financial means.

The root cause of these issues is the exclusion of Roma from wider society. The drive behind this exclusion and unequal citizenship is twofold: public stigmatization and inadequate public policies.

It also needs to be dealt with on a political level, where supportive and fair policies are established and exclusive politics are abandoned.
