Government strategies are not usually the most attractive or readable of texts. As far as the position of Romani people is concerned, readers can find many government documents have been produced already, including the Strategy for the Fight against Social Exclusion or the Strategy for Social Inclusion.

Now a new document is asking for our attention, namely, the Romani Integration Strategy to 2020 (2020 Strategy). The utility of these strategic plans consists of the fact that they convey a vision, formulating the direction we want to go and the routes we choose to get there.

It’s not suprising that at a time when Romani people are facing an increasingly hostile mood here, and when large numbers of them are living in unsuitable conditions on the outskirts of society, that the aim of the 2020 Strategy is to achieve a state of affairs in which such differences will cease to exist between the majority society and a significant proportion of Romani people.
