Amnesty International is deeply concerned about actions taken by the Italian authorities targeting the Roma community. These actions include forced evictions of Romani communities, anti-Roma statements by officials and proposals to take fingerprints of all Roma. In this briefing Amnesty International outlines its concerns regarding actions taken targeting the Romani community, analyses their compliance with international human rights law and makes recommendations to the Italian authorities and the European Union on how to ensure that Italy respects and protects the rights of Roma.
