The European Roma Rights Centre has published a study detailing the forced eviction of dozens of Romanian Roma to the outskirts of a rubbish dump.

The study details the events leading to the eviction and how the families coped with the ordeal. The study also examines how the eviction affected the displaced families in terms of health, perception of discrimination, school enrollment levels etc. What the study finds is that the eviction has had a severe negative impact on all the families, in almost all measures.
