Access to Housing and Right for Roma, Sinti and Caminanti People – January, 13 2022

Roma people are the most significant ethnic minority in Europe. Many of them are part of that segment of the population who find themselves in a precarious housing condition and risk being denied the right to housing.
What are the prospects in a housing landscape that in all of Europe appears to be increasingly difficult to access?
Starting from participation in the R-Home project (Rome: Housing, Opportunities, Mobilization and Empowerment) co-funded by the REC programme of the European Union, which focuses precisely on the right to housing, we are proposing a conference on the right to housing as a decisive hub for the empowerment and rights of discriminated minorities.
The conference, which concludes the project, aims to present the housing situation of the Roma people through the results of research on the housing situation and the analysis of some empowerment projects and programs carried out in five countries of the European Union: France, Hungary, Italy, Romania and Spain.
Please, find attached the programme of the event.
The main research findings from the project can be accessed here.
