Zero tolerance for Roma: Forced evictions and discrimination against Roma in Mil
29
nov
2011

In this report Amnesty International describes how the “Nomad Emergency” has exposed thousands of Roma to serious human rights violations, has aggravated discrimination against Roma, including discrimination in the enjoyment of their right to adequate housing and has enabled greater impunity for deliberate breaches of human rights standards. It examines the decree and ordinances related to the ”Nomad Emergency” in detail, and argues that they are discriminatory and violate various international and regional human rights treaties that Italy is a party to. The report also looks at the situation in Milan where the “Nomad Emergency” facilitated the continuation of forced evictions of Romani communities living in both authorized and unauthorized camps.
