Commission for the Study of Life and Customs of the Roma

Congratulating the Roma people on the occasion of April 8, the International Roma Day, the Committee for the Study of Roma Lifestyle and Customs, Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts, wish to express their sincere appreciation and send their best wishes to the Roma community. At the same time, the Committee members have expressed their concern about the slow progress in terms of resolving the issues hindering fundamental human rights of the members of this exceptionally vulnerable group. The problems that the Roma people have been encountering for unreasonably long time require even stronger fight against poverty and discrimination and affirmation of values ensuring the essential equality and social justice.
