Government backs Roma integration plan to 2020|
The government on Monday backed a new strategic plan on Roma integration to
2020 with the aims of improving education, housing, employment, and
security. The Minister for Human Rights Jiří Dienstbier released details
of the plan in the face of worsening conditions in recent years: around
one-third of the country’s Roma, 80,000, live in ghettos, the Czech News
Agency said. In 2007 there were around 300 such areas; according to
experts, the number has grown by as much as a hundred since.
