Finnish Roma population is very small, approxiamtely 10,000, but when viewed from the European perspective the Finnish Roma are part of a larger European Roma population that estimated to be 10-12 million people. In the EU and in its neighbouring countries Roma have the same rights and responsibilities as the general population. However, in reality the Roma people have a higher risk of facing social exclusion, discrimination, and poverty. The Finnish Roma Association is also interested in the European aspect partly because there are at least 1,000 Migrant Roma living in Finland, who originate mainly from Eastern European and the Balkans. Additionally, at least 3,000 Finnish Roma are known to be residing in Sweden.
