Roma political participation in Romania – from presence to influence

BFD

  • Fribourg : IFF, 2015
English This report analyses the current situation of Roma participation to public decision in Romania to inquire why Roma presence seems to have little influence on decision-making when comparing to Roma numeric weight in the Romanian nations and to the influence of other minorities as the Hungarians.
On the basis of the current conceptual, normative and political framework, this writing applies the Framework Convention Advisory Committee 2008 scheme to the current Roma political participation in Romanian public life and considers it from the point of view of its effectiveness on a scale starting from presence and ending with control.
Influenced by the European developments, Roma political participation in Romania ranges below effective influence but not because of the scarcity of the instruments Romania’s laws provide for, but because of the selective co-optation of Roma representatives it supports complemented with the weak connection between key Roma representatives and the grassroots Roma communities.
