Combating institutional Antigypsyism: Responses and promising practices in the EU

The Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS) has published a new report on combating institutional Antigypsyism in the EU, in cooperation with ENAR. It examines how policies and funding combat Antigypsyism in the European Union and identifies some promising practices in selected EU Member States.

The notion of ‘Antigypsyism’ aims to refocus public policies addressing Roma discrimination in order to place responsibility for combating structural, historically-embedded and systemic forms of racism, discrimination and exclusion towards Roma squarely on state institutions and actors. This report examines the ways in which policies and funding combat Antigypsyism’ in the European Union and selected Member States and assesses the added value of the ’Antigypsyism’ concept, with particular reference to its institutional forms. It explores ways in which these institutional forms could be combated by identifying some promising practices found in five selected EU Member States (Germany, Romania, Spain, Sweden and the UK).

The report further draws conclusions and provides a set of policy recommendations for EU and national Policy makers to effectively combat Antigypsyism.
