The Skopje Spring Congress 2020 may decide:

Stop Discriminatory Measures Towards Roma People

This resolution archives Resolution 2.16 - Stop Discriminatory Measures Regarding Roma People.

Civil Rights, Human Rights, Minority Rights

For consideration on the annual Congress of the European Liberal Youth (LYMEC) in Skopje, North Macedonia on 3-5 April 2020.

Notes:

- the systematic discrimination of Roma minorities on the territory of Europe;

- that Roma children are still frequently taught separately in all-Roma classes or all-Roma schools in some European member states, even after the introduction of the measures against this;

- the gap between the employment rates of Roma people and of the majority population, and the stigmatization and prejudice towards the minority at the labour market in Central and East European countries;

- Roma people in Paris who have been object to a series of vigilante attacks sparked by false reports of attempted child abductions in March 2019;

- that in July 2017, 150 Roma adults and children were subjected to forced eviction in Naples;

- that many  Roma communities in Slovenia as well as in the Balkan parts of Europe often do not have access to sufficient and safe drinking water as they live in isolated, overcrowded and informal settlements.

Considering:

- the fact that the countries of the European Union signed several international human right declarations and treaties like the European Convention of Human Rights, the EU Racial Equality Directive (2000/43/EC and 2000/78/EC) and the European Framework Convention for Protection of National Minorities;

- that European countries have a shared responsibility towards all European citizens, including those belonging to minorities;

- that ethnic registration and ethnically-based measures are objectionable;

- that separate measures could promote further discrimination and isolation, and incentive measures must be incorporated in regular policies, accessible for all people in comparable situations; that affirmative action towards Roma people in particular, could enlarge the tensions with non-Roma citizens.

Calls upon:

- the European Commission, ALDE Party and Renew Europe Group in the European Parliament to evaluate integration policies across the European Union to compare strategies, mechanisms and results of exceptional policies concerning Roma people and propose best practises for better integration, labour market and social inclusion;

- the European Commission to ensure that Member States of the European Union respect the rights of minorities as stated in the treaties mentioned above;

- that LYMEC and its Member organisations will take firms and vocal stand condemning any form of violence or hate speech against Roma people.
