Brussels  20 October 2009 at 11 am Hotel Metropole, 31 Place de Brouckère, 1000 press conference Speakers: Morten Kjaerum, Director of the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) Anastasia Crickley, Chairperson of the FRA Management Board Tara Bedard, Programmes Director, European Roma Rights Centre. Roma continue to experience serious discrimination in access to private and social housing throughout the EU. Although discrimination on grounds of race and ethnic origin in access to housing is legally forbidden, up to 34% of Roma (depending on the Member State) indicate that they have been discriminated against in housing issues, ranging from poor housing conditions and segregation to forced evictions. The FRA report highlights good practices as well as shortcomings across the EU.
