Nowadays with Rumanian families from Roma background being sent back from France to their own country a lot of issues about Human Rights have been brought up in European countries where the Roma population live.
Eastern European countries seem to have difficulties finding their way to decide what to do about the Roma reality. Is help from other European countries needed?
In all the European countries the Roma situation is similar : lack of education, unemployment, immigration, suffering of discrimination and racism. As we are supposed to benefit from the same policies, should the European Union get together in a serious way and address these problems with a common strategy?
