UN Committee Warns of Discrimination Against Roma in Moldova’s Education Sector

Комитет ООН по ликвидации расовой дискриминации выразил обеспокоенность в связи с дискриминацией, распространением стереотипов и ненавистнических высказываний, а также преступлений на почве ненависти в отношении представителей этнических меньшинств, в частности цыган, в Молдове.

Комитет опубликовал в понедельник свои выводы по ситуации в ряде стран, включая Молдову. Эксперты представили рекомендации по осуществлению Международной конвенции о ликвидации всех форм расовой дискриминации. 

Они выразили свою тревогу в связи с низкой посещаемостью школ среди детей из общин рома, особенно девочек. Эксперты отметили, что дети рома часто бросают учебу. При этом в государственных школах Молдовы работает лишь один преподаватель из числа цыган, говорится в докладе. 

Члены Комитета обратились к правительству Молдовы с призывом активизировать усилия по обеспечению для детей-рома доступа к качественному и инклюзивному образованию и повышению уровня посещаемости школ. Такие меры включают в себя информационно-разъяснительные кампании о важной роли учебы среди цыганских детей и молодежи и их семей, а также привлечение большего числа учителей из этнических сообществ. 

Кроме того, Комитет рекомендовал Молдове приложить усилия по внедрению законодательной базы для борьбы с дискриминацией, расистскими высказываниями и преступлениями на почве ненависти в отношении представителей этнических меньшинств, включая цыган.
