Recommendations to combat antigypsyism in future EU and national policies
Policy Statement of the Alliance against Antigypsyism
The two policy papers promote a comprehensive approach to combat antigypsyism in all its dimensions and manifestations. They offer guidance that can be used to develop the EU post-2020 Roma Framework and renewed national Roma policies. They aim to inspire EU institutions, as well as EU Member States and enlargement countries, to adapt or renew their policies aiming to ensure equality for Romani communities. It is essential to prioritise the fight against antigypsyism in the post-2020 EU Roma Framework, as well as transpose it at the national level.
These papers are a result of the work led by the European Roma Grassroots Organisations (ERGO) Network, Central Council for German Sinti and Roma and European Network against Racism, with inputs of more than 25 other Roma and pro-Roma organisations and individual experts.

A new book ‘Dimensions of Antigypsyism in Europe’, edited by Ismael Cortés and Markus End, published by the European Network Against Racism (ENAR) and the Central Council of German Sinti and Roma, sheds light on the complex and different dimensions of this specific form of structural racism in Europe.
The document ‘Antigypsyism – a reference paper’ proposes a working definition of antigypsyism, that reflects a broad but systematic understanding of the phenomenon. The paper explores characteristics and background of antigypsyism, as well as the dimensions along which it manifests itself.
