The First European Roma Organisation

The ten million Roma living in Europe constitute one of its largest minorities. Founded last year, the ERTF (European Roma and Travellers Forum) has held its first conference. The Hungarian sociologist Angela Kocze takes stock. "Under the Copenhagen Criteria, countries that have applied for EU membership are required to respect minority rights, yet older members are not doing so. The EU has introduced a 'Roma Day' but the mass murder of European Roma during the Second World War has yet to be given its rightful place in European history books. EU member states haven't even reached a consensus on how to define the term 'national minority', or whether immigrants with a common cultural background, for example Arabs, Kurds or Roma, belong to one."
