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.
