On the edge of society – Discrimination against Roma in Croatia and Bulgaria

Does Roma face cases of discrimination? Why people from the community are not willing to report these cases? What is the situation with discrimination in Bulgaria and Croatia? What obstacles does Roma face in accessing justice? These and other questions will be discussed during a launch event that Amalipe Center will organize online on 15 October 2021 at 13:00 CET.

The results of the report “Discrimination against Roma in Croatia and Bulgaria” are gathered from fieldwork and focus groups conducted to reveal cases of discrimination including school segregation and employment discrimination. Roma in Bulgaria faces discrimination in all its forms, including racist prejudice by representatives of the executive and judicial authorities in Bulgaria. Also during the meeting, the analysis prepared by our partners Information and Legal Centre (Croatia) will be presented.

The meeting will be attended by representatives of the European Commission, the Commission for Protection against Discrimination, ambassadors, lawyers, NGOs and Roma activists.
