European Roma Rights Centre - Thu, 05/28/2015 - 4:54pm
Is it possible to create an environment where minorities will report hate crime and hate speech in countries like France and Turkey where the authorities refuse to recognise ethnic or racial identities?
Our Legal Director Adam Weiss challenged Jacques Toubon, the French Le Défenseur des Droits this morning at ECRI's (European Commission against Racism and Intolerance) seminar on the role of specialised national bodies in addressing underreporting of discrimination and hate crime, and got a strong response: France will never trap people in the "box" of an ethnic identity. So, can we make progress without a full complement of disaggregated data? We don't think so.

The Slovak government tried to use incest as an argument to avoid EU infringement procedures
The European Commission was collecting evidence of #discrimination against Roma children in accessing education in Slovakia before formally launching infringement procedures. Slovak news portal SME reports that during this process the government argued that: “One of the reasons for the higher occurrence of genetically-conditioned diseases is the fact that Roma families in Slovakia have the highest coefficient of inter-family cross-breeding in Europe”.
There is no data supporting this racist stereotype.
Share if you agree that no government should use unfounded, discriminatory arguments such as this to support its policies.

Can a lawyer’s incompetence stand in the way of a family’s rightful claim to asylum?
The debate unfolds in Canada around a Hungarian family who were forced to leave Canada in December after they spent three years in sanctuary in a Toronto church. The judge found that the family were deprived of a right to a fair trial by Hohots' misconduct. Would they have had a successful asylum claim with a better lawyer?
