International Advocacy Submissions to other Committees of the European Union

19 July 2005

Submission to the European Commission Concerning Implementation of the Race Equality Directive in the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Slovakia

Budapest, Brussels, 19 July 2005.

On the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the official publication of the EU Race Directive, the European Roma Rights Centre (ERRC) submitted detailed comments on measures in five European countries to date to implement the principle of equal treatment, irrespective of racial or ethnic origin. The comments are timed to coincide with deadlines for EU Member States to provide the European Union with comprehensive information on efforts undertaken to date to secure equal treatment for persons facing the very serious harm of racial discrimination. The ERRC submission to the Union institutions focuses in particular on the ability of individuals to realize the promise of equality embodied in the Directive. The document discusses in detail a number of issues arising in the five countries at issue, related to failures of justice where racial discrimination – and in particular where racial discrimination against Roma -- is concerned. The full text of the ERRC submission to the European Commission is available at:  View it (Microsoft Word doc format)!.

Their bodies, too many for the crematorium’s capacity, were burned in pits outside. Upon the Soviet liberation of Auschwitz in 1945, only 4 Roma remained alive.
