Persistent discrimination and exclusion have kept Roma in situations of extreme poverty, poor housing conditions without water and sanitation, but too often with a permanent threat of eviction.
Panelists Valeriu Nicolae, Saimir Mile, Gina Csanyi-Robah and Margarita Ilieva will be discussing the problems of housing and forced evictions of Roma.
