Destroying Progress / Progressing Destruction: EU Romani Women and Children in France

16 September 2014

This report examines the effect of human rights violations on Roma from Romania living in France, with a special focus on the situation of women and children. Participatory research for the report was conducted in early 2014 with six Romani research assistants. The findings show that EU Roma living in France experience disproportionate levels of poverty, continue to live in inadequate housing conditions, and have low access to social benefits and low awareness of rights.
