New Study

Roma Still Face Discrimination

Roma in Sweden, one of the country’s five official minorities, are still facing discrimination in their everyday lives. While especially young Roma are proud of their origin, many other Roma suffer from what they call ‘silent discrimination’ in Sweden, a new study shows.

In a signed article published in daily Svenska Dagbladet Maria Leissner, head of the Delegation for Issues Concerning Roma, and Per Nilsson, head of the National Board for Youth Affairs, point out that the new study criticises Swedish authorities for knowing too little about the Roma.

The two writers demand the authorities do more for ensuring education both for and about the Roma minority in schools. (ah)
