Roma in Slovenia:
Roma as recognised national minority in Slovenia are relatively well supported by the State, what can be illustrated by a special “Roma Community Act”, which passed in 2007. Roma civil society organisations and networks are relatively strong both on the local levels and on the national level.
Problems arise from the distinction between ‘autochthonous’ and ‘non-autochthonous’ Roma communities, with only the former enjoying special minority rights. Only in 20 (out of 212) municipalities have Roma in Slovenia been recognised as autochthonous community and been granted a seat in municipal councils. Moreover, lack of data on Roma in Slovenia (only few surveys on their living conditions and no ethnically disaggregated data) complicate the design of policies and projects.
