Discrimination Against Roma and Our Conference on Trafficking

There are 30,000 Roma, often called Gypsies, living in Sweden today. Although assimilated into Swedish society, this minority group continues to be one of the most ignored and stigmized ethnic minorities in the country.

Jake Bowers is one of Britain’s few Romani journalists. In Stockholm for a conference on human trafficking and the Roma, he talked to Dave Russell about the two years he spent travelling in Sweden in a traditional horse drawn caravan.
