Today to Roma in many constitutions of countries of Southeastern and Western Europe isn’t determined a status of national minority and by that they are denied the possibility of realization of political and national rights that belong to them as a nation in sociological sense. For now, Roma are having recognized status of national minority in constitutions of following countries: Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Croatia, Austria, Finland and Germany, while there is also started an initiative in some other countries to do that.
For sake of realization of conditions for its biological survival and overall development and preservation of its national identity, Roma nation has right on establishment and development of its national, cultural, religious, educational, scientific, economical, financial, political and other institutions and organizations and right on its funding from the state budget.
Roma nation don’t accept unequal and undefined position, it regards it unsustainable and requests from all European political subjects to, within the process of defining the constitutional-legal relations amongst nations and national minorities, provide full political and national equality to Roma nation.
