Housing is a human right which everyone should enjoy without discrimination. It is clearly defined in international law. However, the right to housing it is not fully protected under current Romanian legislation and it affects everybody in the country, not just the poorest and most disadvantaged. Roma are disproportionately affected. This petition urges the Romanian government to protect the right to adequate housing under national legislation, to stop forced evictions and to provide protection to all people, including Roma.
