Wybrane aspekty problematyki migracji Romów po rozszerzeniu Unii Europejskiej

The article ‘Some aspects of migration of the Roma after the enlargement of the European Union’ deals with the problems arising in connection with the migration of the Roma in the EU after its enlargement in 2004 and 2007 by so-called ‘Eastern European countries’, which were quite numerous and are still inhabited by the Roma minority. The article focuses on an attempt to improve the living conditions of the Roma through EU legislation, including Council Directive 2000/43/EC of 29 June 2000 implementing the principle of equal treatment regardless of racial or ethnic origin, Council Directive No. 2000 / 78/WE of 27 November 2007 establishing a general framework for equal treatment in employment and occupation and - in particular - adopted by the European Parliament, „Resolution on the social situation of the Roma and their improved access to the labor market of the EU” in March 2009. The study is an attempt to confront the above-mentioned legal acts with the actual/real possibility of their implementation. The author draws attention to a number of problems in this area (lifestyle, internal diversity of Roma communities, the level of education, access to the labor market, the role of women), mainly due to the difference of the Roma minority culture and the difficulties associated with the integration in the societies of EU member states.
