2016-06-29_09h51_15The Swedish Commission against Anti-Gypsyism, an independent body tasked by the Government to analyse the state of play and to ensure concerted action against Anti-Gypsyism, has now published its final report. The report calls attention to the fact that hate crimes and discrimination continue whilst Roma reports of these crimes pass unnoticed, that more emphasis should be placed on Sweden’s antiziganist and Roma history, and that 2 August should be celebrated as Roma Holocaust Memorial Day. It includes a number of policy recommendations to the Swedish government and calls for the establishment of a national centre for Roma issues, promoting awareness of Roma culture and monitoring (actions taken against) Anti-Gypsyism.

The report is written in Swedish, but it contains an English summary.
