Everybody knows that the issues concerning the Roma are ones that European government would rather go away. However, the Roma and problems concerning them are here to stay in Europe. European countries with significant Roma populations should look to the United States and its pro-diversity and affirmative action policies as a model to help the Roma integrate and grow in their respective societies.
I think that European governments are impeding the protection of Roma rights. I think that there are a lot of reasons that some governments in Europe are not to keen on protecting the rights of Roma. A lot of governments do not see any positives with the plight of the Roma.
No, the European governments are not impeding the protection of Roma rights, because they are sincere in their wanting to help the Roma. The Roma people have a large humanitarian crisis, and the governments of Europe know that it hurts everybody. The governments want to help, they just aren't sure what to do.
No, European governments are not impeding the protection of Roma rights, because there are honest disagreements about the best way to handle the Roma situation. The European Union is a large organization. There are many different opinions about the best way to handle the Roma. The delay is not intentional, it is just to be expected in a large government.
European governments, and the European Union in particular, have gone above and beyond in their efforts to assist and protect Roma (gypsy) minorities. Roma, like all minorities, are already guaranteed rights by national governments and the European Union. In addition however the EU has organized multiple commissions, reports, conventions, etc in support of Roma. Despite this, significant problems among the Roma with poverty and criminality remain.
