Report documents Roma segregation

A report on the protection of minorities in Slovakia, prepared for the European Union by the Open Society Institute, has demonstrated that the Roma minority experiences de fact segregation in education, health care and housing. The report faults mainly the fact that many Roma have no permanent address, which prevents them from using their education and health care rights or even voting in elections.
