New: thematic map on environmental racism against Roma communities

ENVJUSTICE – EJAtlas team at ICTA – UAB in collaboration with the European Environmental Bureau (EEB) and Human Rights activists developed a thematic map on environmental racism against Roma communities in Central and South-Eastern Europe.

Roma communities undergo enormous environmental injustices due to their ethnicity and race. Segregation, racism, intolerance, discrimination, violence, exclusion, unequal access to natural resources – these are just some of the issues that Roma face on a daily basis. The map explores and analyses the injustices experienced by Roma in Bulgaria, Slovakia, Romania, Hungary, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, and Kosovo.

The map was prepared by Ksenija Hanaček and Federico Demaria (ICTA-UAB), Patrizia Heidegger and Katharina Wiese (EEB), Radost Zahireva (Bulgaria), Mustafa Asanovski (Macedonia), Ciprian-Valentin Nodis (Rumania), Zsuzsanna Kovács (Hungary), Ondrej Poduska (Slovakia).
