School discrimination against Roma : EU gives strong signal by taking action against the Czech Republic

The European Commission yesterday announced that it would initiate legal action (so-called infringement proceedings) against the Czech Republic for discrimination against Roma children in schools. The European Roma Policy Coalition welcomes this long-awaited move. It sends a strong message that discrimination on racial grounds is unlawful and violates the European Union’s (EU) basic values.
