Across Europe the challenge of providing Roma/Gypsy and traveller children with access to quality education is not being met. Many school systems continue to marginalize Roma/Gypsy and traveller children, thereby effectively denying them the chance to reach their full potential. The "Denied a Future?" report examines 14 countries across Europe, from west to east. It highlights the impact that a lack of personal security and freedom of movement, poverty and powerlessness all have on access to education for Roma/Gypsy and traveller children. "Denied a Future?" highlights the fact that, despite a raft of international and national legislation, institutional discrimination and ill-designed policies often result in unacceptably low standards of education for Roma/Gypsy and traveller children. Their education is often irrelevant to their lives and the needs of modern economies. "Denied a Future?" places the issue in the context of the enlargement of the European Union and provides a benchmark against which future donor investments can be assessed. Clear recommendations provide targets for policy-makers, educational practitioners, governments, donors and non-governmental organizations to ensure over 2 million children's right to education is finally made a reality. The four volumes of "Denied a Future?" are Volume 1 "South-eastern Europe", Volume 2 "Western and Central Europe", an "International legislation" handbook and the "Summary".
