EU must deal carefully with Roma problem

The Swedish police cleared an illegal Roma settlement in the Stockholm suburb of Helenelund on Thursday. But the problem of poverty-induced immigration calls for long-term solutions, the liberal daily Dagens Nyheter stresses: "The EU has already invested billions in Romania. In view of the results, caution is called for before any more money is showered on the country. The misery of the Roma has deep roots. It has proved difficult to give Roma better access to education, work and social services. At the same time the lack of joint economic instruments is hard to explain. And that at a time when the economic gap between the countries of the EU is posing long-term challenges to the entire European project."
