Italy: Submission to the United Nations Committee on the elimination of racial discrimination – 91st session, 21 november–9 december

Index number: EUR 30/5078/2016. Amnesty International submits this document in advance of the United Nations (UN) Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination’s (CERD) review of Italy’s 19th and 20th periodic reports. In this submission, Amnesty International wishes to offer updated information regarding the continuing discrimination of Roma in respect of the right to adequate housing – a matter which the organization has researched for almost a decade. The information provided in this document seeks to update the CERD on the current situation following previous submissions made by the organisation. In February 2012 Amnesty International submitted a Briefing to the CERD for consideration in advance of the review of Italy’s 16th to 18th periodic reports.
