Launch of Alliance against Antigypsyism

The Alliance of Antigypsyism launched in July 2016 and produced a reference paper. The Alliance is an occasional coalition of organisations that promote equality of rights for Roma, to advance a better understanding of antigypsyism. The Alliance counts more than seventy members from across Europe.

The reference paper lays out issues of specific racism against Roma, Sinti, Travellers and other groups who are stigmatised as ‘gypsies’ in the public domain. The reference paper proposes a working definition of antigypsyism.
