Enforcement of the anti-Racism legislation of the European Union against antigypsyism
MetadataShow full item record
The European Union (EU) became a pioneer of the promotion of human rights and democratic values especially during the last decades. However, the members of the EU are not immune from the human rights violations including the areas of "equality" and "non-discrimination" that are related to racism, discrimination and xenophobia. "Antigypsyism", a form of racism, is among the most challenging human rights areas for the member states despite all recent initiatives. In this research, the use of EU competences to combat antigypsyism is analysed with case studies. It is argued that the use of the competences is limited.
