In this briefing, Amnesty International, the European Roma Rights Centre and Foundation Desire express their concerns about the inadequate housing conditions of approximately 1,500 residents – mostly of Romani origin – of the Pata Rât area in Cluj-Napoca. The organizations consider that these conditions amount to violations of international human rights law and standards which are applicable to Romania with respect to the right to adequate housing and other related economic and social rights, access to an effective remedy and protection from discrimination.
