Memorandum to the European Commission Violations of EU Law and Fundamental Rights by Bulgaria’s Discriminatory Treatment of Roma in the Area of Housing

In 2016 the Equal Opportunities Initiative Association (EOIA) implemented a field research concerning the housing situation of Roma in Bulgaria. Disturbing facts have been identified, which shows that Roma are disproportionately subjected to forced eviction and demolitions of only homes without securing any alternatives even for children and vulnerable members of affected families. The research has been done with the financial support of the Open Society European Policy Institute. A detailed report with the results of the research is to be published soon. The OSEPI and EOIA addressed The European Commission with a memorandum containing the results from the research urging for initiation of infringement procedure on the matter.
