CELEBRATING International Roma Day (April 8) should serve as an opportunity to draw attention to the rich culture and history of Roma as well as to the fact that large groups of Roma are marginalised in society, stated a press release from the UN Development Programme (UNDP) Bratislava Regional Centre, the TASR newswire reported.
The UNDP is planning to publish a report focusing on the living conditions of Roma households in Slovakia.
The UN agency said its findings will promote better understanding of the difficulties faced by Roma citizens in Slovakia and will recommend appropriate policies that can create a framework for enhancing the lives of Roma in the country, TASR wrote.
