People can go through the process of making things into law that people have to follow, but, ultimately, if the public will is not behind the laws fully, the citizens will never be integrated into society, and anything they are given will be resented by the people in the countries.
The European Roma really the victims of social exclusion more than anything else. I believe that this is what the issue is really about. The Roma people wanted help from their government and it was refused. I believe that the Roma people finally said just to leave them alone and did not want the support anymore.
Social exclusion is dangerous in that it can create an avalanche effect whereby small problems (i.e. access to education) magnify into major ones (i.e. multi-generational low educationa attainment) - but social exclusion is not a truly independent variable. The lack of education begets social exclusion, and social exclusion begets low education. Accordingly you have to tackle each of the specific problems on an individual basis before you can tackle an aggregate problem.
European Roma are a group of people who find it hard to assimilate within the countries they live in. A lot of the times, they choose not to try to become a part of the country in a social and economic sense. To portray them as victims would be silly.
No, the Roma people of Europe are not actually having any bad things happen to them. They are just a race, that is going to be looked down upon by some of the other races, just since people in this world are naturally racist to one another, its how it is.
