Slovenia: Parallel lives: Roma denied rights to housing and water in Slovenia
Date Published: 16 March 2011
Almost all of the population in Slovenia has access to safe drinking water, but some Romani communities have to fetch their water from polluted streams or public taps. The lack of access to water and sanitation, however, is only part of the grossly inadequate housing conditions for many Romani communities.

Slovenia has the expertise, experience and resources to ensure that Romani communities enjoy the same human rights as the rest of the Slovenian population.
