Number of ghettos up as poor move away from urban centres
28-05-2015 - Ian Willoughby

The number of spots designated as ghettos in the Czech Republic has doubled since 2006, according to a report prepared for the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs by the company GAC. There are now 606 poverty-stricken buildings, streets and districts in the country, the study said. An estimated 115,000 people, many from the Roma minority, live in places designated as socially excluded, compared to 80,000 nine years ago. The authors of the report said the change had come about in part because people were moving from urban centres to outlying areas, leading to more but smaller ghettos.
