Roma and Sinti communities have been described as the rejected Europeans.

They have lived here for centuries and yet during much of that time have been segregated, excluded and even murdered.

In today's programme, Robert Rustem of the European Roma and Travellers Forum explains why Roma activists are looking for inspiration to the Black Power movement of the United States in their fight against discrimination.

We also explore the roots of Roma phobia with studio guests Samantha Agro, a journalist with the ANSA press agency and Michael Guet, a Roma specialist from the Council of Europe.

And Nils Muiznieks, Chair of European Commission Against Racism And Intolerance gives a glimpse of a future dilemma for European governments - their economies will need migrants but their citizens don't want them.
