Addressing the Plight of Kosovo Roma Refugees in Macedonia

Legacy Link
The plight of Kosovo Roma refugees in Macedonia—dramatically demonstrated by their protest occupation of a border area between Greece and Macedonia from May until August this year—highlights the gap between international refugee law on the one hand, and the reality for refugees in Europe today on the other. This Human Rights Watch briefing paper analyzes the Macedonia refugee crisis in light of international refugee law and points towards possible solutions that can be found in these relevant international standards.
