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.
This Brief presents and summarizes the key findings and policy recommendations based on the four CHACHIPEN Country Reports covering Germany, Romania, Sweden, and Spain. It highlights commonalities and differences between these EU member states, draws lessons learned, and makes recommendations for future EU policy interventions. This Brief also takes into account the key findings resulting from the Strategic Visioning Exercise that took place on 23 June 2022 as part of the CHACHIPEN project.
This paper represents an analysis of antigypsyism in Romania. It is part of the
CHACHIPEN project, advancing the recognition of, and response to, antigypsyism to
achieve justice, equality, non-discrimination, and the full participation of Roma as
equal citizens across Europe.
This research is part of the European project CHACHIPEN which pursues the key
objective of advancing the recognition and response to historically rooted and
systemic antigypsyism to achieve justice, equality, non-discrimination, and the full
participation of Roma as equal citizens across Europe.
How can transitional justice tools address historically rooted antigypsyism? What can we learn from transitional justice experiences with truth and reconciliation commissions around the globe? What could be applied and to which chapters of the dark history of antigypsyism? These and other topical questions have been addressed during the Strategic Visioning Exercise convened by CEPS.
