Approaching the Roma from a Human-Development Perspective

November 04, 2003 // 11:00am1:00pm
Global Europe Program
Central and Eastern European countries will become successful members of the European Union only if the Roma, the region's largest ethnic minority, become fully integrated through jobs, education, health care and political participation. So argues The Roma in Central and Eastern Europe: Avoiding the Dependency Trap, a path-breaking report that UNDP released earlier this year. The report looks at Roma realities from a "human development" perspective, an approach pioneered by UNDP over a decade ago. In particular, the report broadens the human-rights debate concerning the Roma to include larger developmental issues.
