Exclusion from Employment
European Roma Rights Centre Quarterly Journal Roma Rights
Number 1/2006

The massive and disproportionate exclusion of Roma from employment is an
undisputed reality in many countries. This fact raises serious human
rights concerns about the failure of governments to curb racial
discrimination
in employment as well as to undertake proactive measures to confront
disadvantages facing Roma at the labour market.

The current issue of Roma Rights presents, among other things, a summary
of recent ERRC research in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary,
Romania and Slovakia on discrimination of Roma in the labour market.
This issue of Roma Rights also examines the effectiveness of various
approaches to tackling employment inequalities, as well as a range of
other relevant issues. The table of contents of Roma Rights 1/2006
