Roma and the Displaced in Southeast Europe
At Risk: Roma and the Displaced in Southeast Europe" builds on and expands the groundbreaking work first published in Avoiding the Dependency Trap, the 2003 regional report by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) on Roma in Central Europe. That report offered a deeper, more complex view of Roma exclusion. Using quantitative data from cross-country surveys, it complemented the traditional human rights paradigm with a human development perspective. The report emphasized the importance of integrating the Roma just as the countries of Central Europe were preparing to enter the European Union (EU).
