Back No. 178/2019 Amnesty International v. Italy
The complaint was registered on 18 March 2018. Amnesty International alleged that the housing situation of Roma and Sinti in Italy is in violation of Article 31 (right of housing), read alone or in conjunction with Article E (non-discrimination), due to the continued perpetration of forced evictions, segregated and substandard housing, and use of discriminatory criteria for the allocation of social housing.
The European Committee of Social Rights unanimously declared the complaint admissible and decided, by 13 votes against 1, to indicate immediate measures on 4 July 2019.
