Report of the Special Rapporteur on minority issues, A/HRC/29/24, 11 May 2015

VI. Conclusions and recommendations

98. The Special Rapporteur thus urges all relevant stakeholders to think outside the “poverty paradigm” and incorporate all aspects of minority rights into strategies that address Roma disadvantage, including the protection and promotion of Roma identity, language and culture and the guarantee of dignity and equality. Such programmes should guarantee that the specific needs of Roma women, as well as Roma with disabilities, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex persons, young people and older persons are heard and addressed.
