LNOB: Poverty and discrimination among Roma and Diaspora from Communities Discriminated on Work and Descent (CDWD

March 11 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm UTC+1

Discrimination based on Work and Descent (DWD) affects more than 270 million people worldwide, with about 15 million Roma and other communities DWD diaspora in Europe, such as Dalits and Haratins. CDWD are regarded as the most vulnerable groups in terms of social, economic, and political development. They experience intersectional discrimination and oppression because of overlapping social constructs of ability, age, work, caste, class, ethnicity and gender. 


This event aims to:

  • spotlight the discrimination and poverty faced by CDWD and to emphasise the importance of addressing multiple layers of discrimination for effective policy formulation and societal change or transformation.
  • share practices, innovative steps, and initiatives from a variety of DWD communities
  • representatives and stakeholders working on eradicating poverty and reducing discrimination, as a way to accelerate progress on SDG 1. 
  • create a space for discussing current challenges and areas of improvement in the ECE region with regards to SGD 1 and its linkage to Roma and CDWD.
  • scale up cooperation on the larger issue of discrimination and access to decent jobs.
  • showcase work at the European and country level that addresses the specific experiences of poverty among CDWD.
