UNDP and Roma Survey - Regional Brief
Of the estimated 10-12 million Roma living in Europe, around one million live in the Western Balkans and 0.5 to 2.5 million live in Turkey. Their socio-economic position has been the subject of intense debate in the Western Balkans for more than a decade.
The Regional Survey on the Socio-Economic Position of Roma, carried out in the Western Balkans and Turkey, will make a major contribution to filling the gap in the availability of up-to-date data needed to monitor and inform policies aimed at the social inclusion of Roma. It will also inform the EU’s and enlargement countries’ commitment to achieving the 2030 Sustainable Development agenda, through the design, imple- mentation, and monitoring of policies preventing and curbing social exclusion and inequalities.
