ORGANISME(S) DÉTENTEUR(S) ou DÉPOSITAIRE(S)
Roma people, migrations, economic transition, positive discrimination, racialization of political discourse, human rights, delinquency … In the West as in the East, this survey sets out to meet politicians, historians, sociologists and of Roma to disentangle the true from the false, the clichés of reality. Without taboo.
In the Czech Republic 28% of Roma children are still educated in schools for the mentally retarded despite the condemnation by the European Court of Human Rights … In Hungary, evictions of the Roma continue, the Hungarian far-right puts into practice its policy towards these « Roma parasites ». The speeches are radicalized on the right as on the left. Yet in Berlin, Roma migrants are as numerous as in the whole of France, but none live in a slum … so a cultural dimension or a political choice? And meanwhile, in Budapest, the future Roma elite is forming in the University of Georges Soros… How does it see its future, its fight?
At a time when Europe is closing in on its national borders, this Roma issue leads us to reflect on migration as well as our vision of the foreigner, of the Other … what is it to be European?
