Discrimination against Roma and the marginalisation this has engendered clearly demonstrates the need for action to enhance Roma’s prospects of influencing the conditions under which they live. Discrimination means that the principle of equal rights and human dignity for all is not being upheld, and this is a serious democratic problem for society as a whole, not just for the groups or individuals it affects.
The report describes the Equality Ombudsman’s experience of promoting Roma rights, the aim being to determine how far this work has progressed and what further measures need to be taken.
