Roma – NIMBY (Not In My Back Yard)

Roma flag

Where can the Roma settle in Europe?

An interesting and provocative article from Der Spiegel today, concentrating on an increased influx of asylum seekers from Macedonia and Serbia to Germany, but raising EU-wide questions of relevance. It may begin with the accepted definitions of an extended visa-free area and possible exploitation or abuse of the terms and conditions, but quickly enlarges its scope to a specific, and so-far hopelessly unanswered European question: what place do Roma have in any of our countries, and why – or why not?
