RAE communities in Kosovo
(14/10-2007) Today at a seminar in Oslo the Norwegian Helsinki Committee lectures on the situation of Roma, Ashkaeli and Egyptian minorities in Kosovo.
NHC Kosovo representative Julie Chadbourne bases her presentation at the Holocaust Center on our most recent Kosovo report: "Second Second-class Minorities: The Continued Marginalization of RAE Communities in Kosovo". She says:
"The human rights situation of the RAE communities in Kosovo is grim. For years, human rights organizations both within and outside of Kosovo have acknowledged that the RAE communities remain the most marginalized and discriminated against of communities in the territory."
