In a Europe that prides itself on its commitment to diversity, equality, and human rights, the persistence of discrimination against Roma communities, discriminated on work and descent, stands as a stark reminder of the challenges that still lie ahead. This report sheds light on the troubling issues of discrimination faced by Roma individuals and communities in Slovakia. As we delve into the depths of this pressing concern, we are confronted with the urgent need for comprehensive and sustainable solutions.

Roma, a historically marginalised and resilient ethnic group, have long faced systemic discrimination and prejudice across Europe. Despite the strides made in the realms of social progress and legal reforms, the Roma population continues to encounter substantial barriers, particularly in areas of work and other key social services and public goods. This report illuminates the intricate web of challenges that contribute to the perpetuation of discrimination, examining the contexts of Slovakia.

Slovakia, a nation rich in culture and history, has struggled to provide equal opportunities for its Roma citizens. Through careful analysis, we uncover the multifaceted dimensions of discrimination in employment, where access to decent work remains a distant dream for many Roma individuals. The intertwining factors of education, cultural stereotypes, and unequal access to resources become apparent as we examine the root causes of this issue. Additionally, the discriminatory treatment of Roma based on their descent adds another layer of complexity, posing fundamental questions about the core principles of human rights and dignity.
