Serbia: Not welcome anywhere: Stop the forced return of Roma to Kosovo

By Amnesty International, , Index number: EUR 70/011/2010

Increasing numbers of Roma and members of other minority communities are being forcibly returned to Kosovo by European Union (EU) member states, despite recommendations by the UN High Commissioner for Refugees on their eligibility for continued international protection. Amnesty International considers decisions by EU countries to withdraw international protection to be premature. This report documents the persistent discrimination and cumulative human rights violations experienced by forcibly returned Roma and other minorities, including the Kosovo authorities’ failure to ensure that forced returnees have access to documentation and to guarantee their rights to education, health care, employment and housing.
