Slovenia: Submission to the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (88th session, 23 November – 11 December 2015)

, Index number: EUR 68/2899/2015

Amnesty International is submitting this briefing in advance of the Eighty-eighth session of the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, in which it provides information relevant to the examination of the State party report on Slovenia and evaluates the situation of ethnic and national minorities, particularly the Roma and non-citizens (specifically the “erased”). Amnesty International demonstrates that the government has failed to adequately address the Committee’s concerns and recommendations in these areas from its last examination of Slovenia in 2010 and notes with concern that the legal and institutional human rights framework is not effective in upholding the right to non-discrimination, or providing effective remedies for its violation.
