About 12,000 Roma were illegally moved from their settlements in 2012 in France. Two-thirds of the evictions happened during the presidency of François Hollande, according to a report from the European Association for the Defense of Human Rights (AEDH). The report underlines its concern that French policy with regards to nomadic people has not changed under the socialist presidency of Hollande, and there is a continuation of the previous right-wing administration’s policies. In 2011, 9,396 Roma were evicted – fewer than in 2012. Furthermore, of the 63 evictions that have taken place since last June, 48 were carried out without alternative housing having been offered, as is required by law.
