In January 2006 the Committee for the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (the Committee) called on the government to take “temporary special measures”, reflecting the degree of its concern about the situation of Roma women and women from other minority communities in Macedonia. In this submission Amnesty International concludes that Macedonia has made little progress towards guaranteeing the rights of Romani women and girls since then. The organization urges the Committee to repeat their previous recommendations and also suggests further specific measures that the Macedonian government should undertake.
