Beyond delusions: A 21st Century Manifesto

"Valeriu Nicolae packs one thousand years into one hundred pages in this bracing manifesto for the 21st Century, covering racism, identity, mass media, slavery, ghetto life, affirmative action, social inclusion and much more."

Read here Bernard Rorke's review on Valeriu Nicolae's book, "We are the Roma! One thousand years of discrimination": http://www.errc.org/blog/beyond-delusions-a-21st-century-manifesto/27

8th EU Anti Trafficking Day: 18 October

European Anti-Trafficking Day has taken place on 18 October every year since 2007. This day is an opportunity to raise awareness about the need for better policies aimed at preventing and combating trafficking of human beings: http://ec.europa.eu/anti-trafficking/

Advocacy work on human #trafficking is all the more complicated as there are no reliable statistics available. This is creates a complex situation with regard to ethnic minorities such as #Roma, due to the absence of disaggregated data. Despite the lack of concrete official data about trafficking and also exploitation of Roma, a research conducted by the ERRC and People in Need (#PiN) points out to some crucial issues. First of all, the report underlines the existence of widespread perceptions that Roma are affected by trafficking in human beings. Also, Roma are perceived to be significantly overrepresented among trafficked persons in some countries. Moreover, #Romani women and children were found to be particularly vulnerable to trafficking. Roma are trafficked for various purposes, including sexual exploitation, labour exploitation, domestic servitude, organ trafficking, illegal adoption and forced begging.

The findings of the research also indicate a lack of targeted action by states’ officials to tackle this issue. Instead, combating trafficking in human beings has been used as a pretext to promote #racist policies against Roma.
