EU court ruling on ‘benefit tourism’ – is Dano about law or politics?

A recent EU court ruling that states may deny social benefits to ‘economically inactive’ nationals of other EU member states was hailed by some politicians as a vindication of their efforts to stem the tide of ‘benefit tourists’. In this blog Stefan Luca examines the background to this ruling, and asks whether this judgment is based on first principles of citizenship and equality, or something more spurious.

European Roma Rights Centre - Thu, 12/18/2014 - 7:26pm
Nils Muižnieks, the Commissioner for Human Rights of the Council of Europe recently published a report on Hungary.

He is raising concern about the wide-spread anti-gypsyism and discrimination Roma face in Hungary, primarily in access to education, to adequate housing and to employment. The report emphasises that “Roma pupils remain strongly disadvantaged in education across Hungary”, expresses concern regarding the fact that “segregated settings were (re-)opened in the last few years in contradiction with the official commitment taken towards desegregation”, and urged “the Hungarian authorities to step up efforts to improve Roma access to education by addressing all forms of school segregation of Roma children”.

Thomas Hammarberg discusses the growth of xenophobic forces and the crisis of our democracies; anti-Gypsyism in Europe; hate speech and hate crime in the Czech Republic and Hungary; the White Paper in Sweden; poverty and exclusion in Romania; why the French government tried and failed to have him dismissed; and why you should never spy into a child’s diary.

December 18 is International Migrants Day

Today , on International Migrants Day as adopted by the UN General Assembly, the ERRC calls for the respect of the human rights of migrants and strongly condemns manifestations and racism and intolerance against migrants.

On this occasion, see the ERRC’s latest Roma Rights issue which draws attention to the migration of Roma from the Western Balkans to EU countries.

Migration of Roma from the Western Balkans has attracted significant attention, which at times amounts to hysteria. It has had an impact on migration policy both in countries of origin and target countries for migration. Romani migration has also become a common topic in public discourse, often framed negatively by media and by public figures. The articles in this issue assess the motivations for Romani migration, the impact of migration policies on Roma, and the experience of Romani migrants.

Coastei Street evicted Roma – 4 years fighting for justice, but not giving up

Today marks the anniversary of the eviction of over 300 Roma from Coastei street, in the heart of Cluj-Napoca, Romania. Here are the voices of some of those who were evicted and those who are organising the fight for justice. To commemorate the eviction, a play was also staged, showing many of the issues which Roma face when trying to access housing in Romania.

The Romani families who were evicted in December 2010 have suffered many difficult times because of the eviction and subsequent isolation. However, their spirits remain unbroken, and they refuse to give up their fight for justice. The European Roma Rights Centre has supported this fight - we are proud to stand with the Coastei street community, and we are struck by the resilience and determination they have shown. Today on this anniversary, as the families again face into winter and also the holiday season, living in the isolated and harsh conditions, the ERRC calls on authorities to move the Pata Rat Roma back to the city.

Workshop on Strategic Litigation

Our Legal Director Adam Weiss and our Belgrade-based Legal Consultant Andrea Colak are leading a strategic litigation training today in Serbia for Roma rights NGOs and lawyers.

The training has been put on by the NGO Civil Rights Defenders. Adam and Andrea are working with participants to deal with the difficult question of what makes a case strategic.
It is easy for lawyers to identify a good, interesting case from a legal perspective, but much more difficult to build cases that will attack the deep, segregating structures that oppress Roma.
Adam and Andrea are working with participants to do this "deep-structure analysis" and to build cases around that.
