Protection of the Roma Minority under International and European Law is a comprehensive coverage of all international legal aspects relating to the protection of Europe’s biggest minority group, the Roma. This book combines a practical approach with in-depth analysis, based on the most up-to-date international documents and more than 160 international and national cases. A unique comparison is made with respect to the similarities of indigenous peoples and the Roma. Issues of indigenous peoples are highly featured in the work of the United Nations, and as such the possibility of extending this protection to the Roma – besides Article 27 of the ICCPR – is analysed. At the European level, the author covers the relevant case-law of the European Court of Human Rights and the European Court of Justice, as well as that of the OSCE, the Council of Europe, the European Committee of Social Rights, and the EU. Besides material law, the book also guides the reader in procedural aspects by advising on which forum to choose for a Roma-related discrimination case.

Target group
