This report discusses some of the current drivers and challenges of Roma migration to the UK. Roma migration is a contested topic. The pages of the UK and European tabloids often portray Roma people as the shameful face of European freedom of movement. Roma people are frequently described as “welfare tourists” and abusing free movement rights. In this context, Roma’s own aspirations to mobility and freedom of movement are construed as anomalous.
