Albania Temporary solutions are no solutions for evicted Roma families in Tirana

3 Feb 2012 children in street situation housing roma

‘Amnesty International’ issued a press release, which says that the Albanian authorities must immediately provide adequate housing for around 35 Roma families who face imminent forced eviction or have already been on the streets. Dozens of Romani people, including the elderly and small children, are facing winter on the streets. This is the result of decades of failure by the authorities to provide adequate housing to Roma, and other vulnerable groups in Albania, despite their national and international obligations”, said Jezerca Tigani, Europe and Central Asia Deputy Programme Director.
