Avoiding the Dependency Trap: The Roma Human Development Report

This report represents the first comprehensive quantitative survey of the Roma minorities in five Central and Eastern European (CEE) countries (Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania and the Slovak Republic). This study seeks to provide national and international policy makers, academics and representatives of civil society with accurate, reliable, and comparative statistical data, which are necessary to design and implement sound policy. The survey looks at Roma realities from a “human development” perspective, an approach pioneered by UNDP over a decade ago. Human development seeks to assess development levels of groups or communities according to a broad set of criteria. With the ultimate goal of expanding people’s choices, human development looks at indices of life expectancy, education and per-capita income, which provide a broader perspective on the options available to groups such as the Roma.
