Norway: New report highlights discrimination against national minorities

Minority rights experts are worried by the treatment of Roma people in Norway.

A new Opinion from the Advisory Committee on the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities urges Norway to take effective measures to rebuild trust and raise awareness in particular of the Tater/Romani and the Roma national minorities in the country.

The report also wants Norway’s authorities to seek “alternative measures to the placement of Roma children in child welfare services” and “address discriminatory attitudes towards minorities’ travelling lifestyle and ensure their access to education and employment.”
