The chart shows the level of awareness of Roma communities about a law that forbids discrimination based on skin colour, ethnic origin or religion in nine European Union member states, in 2016. European Union refes to EU28. The United Kingdom left the European Union on 31 January 2020. The results show that, on average, only slightly more than one in three Roma women (34 %) and men (38 %) are aware of the existence of such antidiscrimination legislation in their country.
