"The research paper “Interplay between gender and ethnicity: Exposing structural disparities of Romani women” written by Angela Kocze and Ewa Cukrowska attempts to address the status of Roma women in various thematic fields such as education, employment, health and housing, when compared with non-Roma women and Roma men. The primary goal of this paper is to encourage policy makers to recognize structural gender inequalities and their ethnic dimensions. The paper documents inequalities faced by Roma women – as women, and as ethnic minorities – in the areas of education, employment, health and housing. It identifies the sources of these inequalities and reports progress in alleviating ethnic and gender inequalities by comparing the situation in 2011 and 2004.

This publication has been published as part of the UNDP’s Roma Inclusion Working Papers series and uses the data from the UNDP/WB/EC Regional Roma Survey 2011 as well as from the UNDP regional Roma survey 2004."
