Open Democracy warned for many years about the discriminated, marginalised and precarious conditions the Roma refugees from Kosovo have been living in Podgorica. However, it took 19 years for the Montenegrin government to develop any alternative, and this was to build block apartments for all the families but at the same place: on the former Konik camp surrounded by a landfill on outskirts of Podgorica.
|Do you consider this an environmental justice success? Was environmental justice served?:||No|
|Briefly explain:||Despite the conditions in the camp, the refugees were reported to be stoo scared to complain . Aftae 2018, the case is understood as closed, since all families have been provided with new apartments in December 2018, damages due to 19 years of environmental injustices and discriminations are still reflected on the fact that the Roma remain living on the outskirts of the Podgorica town close to a landfill. |
