In September 2021, we sent a submission to the Advisory Committee for the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities, in which we describe  shortcomings in the implementation of the Framework Convention for the Protection of National Minorities by the Slovak government in relation to the Roma minority in Slovakia.

In our submission we address, among other things, violations of the reproductive rights of Romani women, shortcomings in the investigation of police violence or violations of the rights of Romani children to education.
