International Roma Day Photo Competition

Vaša Prava BiH and UNHCR commemorate International Roma Day, reminding governments of the social vulnerability and marginalization of Roma people, while encouraging additional efforts in preventing and eliminating statelessness

As a marginalized community, Roma encounter obstacles in exercising their fundamental human rights. Many are absent from birth registries, and therefore, do not possess identification documents. Without such, individuals are unable to exercise their social, political, health, education, and employment rights. Consequently, this poses a substantial obstacle for Roma social integration, increasing the risk for statelessness.
