Strategic litigation at the ERRC means supporting legal cases designed to expose and contribute to the elimination of discriminatory structures that prevent Roma from enjoying full equality. We are active in both domestic and international courts as well as making submissions to international tribunals, European committees and UN treaty bodies.
We work at a national and international level to ensure that human rights issues facing Romani communities in Europe are firmly on the political agenda. We provide reliable data on the human rights situation of Roma in the form of reports, submissions, and articles to inform international bodies and committees, as well as our own litigation work.
Using our European network and in-country activists, we publish accurate news about human rights violations against Romani people which are often untold, or silenced, by governments and media. We make it clear that legal action can, and will, be taken to end this injustice.
