This article will critically examine the treatment of migrant Roma in Western Europe, particularly Italy and France, in the light of the obligations under the E U Citizenship Directive 2004/38. The role of the political institutions will be considered, especially the European Commission, who have yet to take a decisive position on the Roma expulsions and on the wider issue of Roma discrimination in Europe. It is argued that the focus on non-discrimination cannot address the entrenched inequality which characterises the Roma's situation in Europe. Furthermore, that the comparative disadvantage experienced by Europe's Roma communities constitutes a major human rights crisis which has so far been side-lined by Brussels. A European strategy is urgently required which demands leadership from the Commission and the full participation of Roma representatives.
