Stare de impunitate: Încălcarea drepturilor omului – cazul romilor din România

Stare de impunitate: Încălcarea drepturilor omului – cazul romilor din România

Impunitatea este o conventie nescrisa potrivit căreia acţiunile împotriva rromilor nu sunt guvernate de aceleaşi reguli ca şi cele pentru neromi. In cazul romilor, atacurile violente, negarea drepturilor fundamentale şi discriminarea rasială flagrantă sau subtila sunt nepedpiste sau insuficient pedepsite în România.

Episoade majore de violenţa împotriva comunităţilor de romi - pogromuri incluzand incendieri şi ucideri in  masă -au rezultat simulacre in justitie, în cazurile in care o procedura legala a fost totusi initiata.

Impunitatea se extinde la aproape toate sferele vieţii sociale în România: chiar şi romii scutiti de jignirea şi care sufera  de pe urma violenţelor  rasiale traiesc zi de zi  într-o stare impunitate, în practică neprotejati impotriva  tratamentului  diferentiat.

The Fragility of Professional Competence: A Preliminary Account of Child Protection Practice with Romani and Traveller Children in England

Romani and Traveller children in England are much more likely to be taken into state care than the majority population, and the numbers are rising. Between 2009 and 2016 the number of Irish Travellers in care has risen by 400% and the number of Romani children has risen 933%. The increases are not consistent with national trends, and when compared to population data, suggest that Romani and Traveller children living in the UK could be 3 times more likely be taken into public care than any other child.

Families Divided: Romani and Egyptian Children in Albanian Institutions

21 November 2017

There’s a high percentage of Romani and Egyptian children in children’s homes in Albania – a disproportionate number. These children are often put into institutions because of poverty, and then find it impossible ever to return to their families. Because of centuries of discrimination Roma and Egyptians in Albania are less likely to live in adequate housing, less likely to be employed and more likely to feel the effects of extreme poverty.
