Make human rights for Muslims a reality in Europe: stop Islamophobia - Joint statement

21 September has been recognised as the “European Day Against Islamophobia”. A group of anti-racism, #Muslim, #Jewish, #Roma and Black organisations, including the ERRC, issued a joint statement today to call on EU leaders and decision makers to recognise #Islamophobia as a specific form of #racism and to tackle this increasing phenomenon.

ERRC and NEKI leave Human Rights Working Group to Protest Hungarian Government’s Actions against NGOs

The ERRC and the Legal Defense Bureau for Ethnic and National Minorities (#NEKI) sent a letter to Deputy Secretary of State Dr. Róbert #Répássy, who is also the President of the Human Rights Roundtable, to express their concern regarding the recent wave of attacks launched by the Government against various NGOs in #Hungary. The two organisations informed Mr. Répássy that they are leaving the Human Rights Roundtable because meaningful cooperation with the government is no longer possible in the light of these ongoing attacks against Hungarian civil society. In the letter, the ERRC and NEKI underlined that, although they have not been directly affected by the recent events, they condemn this negative campaign and express their support to the organisations affected. The Human Rights Roundtable is a Government initiative launched in 2012 to bring civil society and officials together to discuss human rights issues.

European Roma Rights Centre - Thu, 09/18/2014 - 3:42pm
The ERRC recently published a report entitled “Destroying Progress/Progressing Destruction: EU Romani Women and Children in France”.

The report is the outcome of field research in six informal #Romani settlements in France, including interviews with 118 EU Romani citizens. The research was conducted with the active participation of six Romani women from #Romania living in France.

The findings show that #EU #Roma living in #France experience disproportionate levels of poverty, continue to live in inadequate housing conditions, and have low access to social benefits and low awareness of rights. The report also highlights the specific human rights violations of forced evictions and of restricting access to education, and the subsequent psychological problems and challenges concerning integration.

This report and the research contributing to it have been funded by the Bernard Van Leer Foundation.
