    DescriptionThere is an EU Roma policy, but its intended beneficiary – Europe’s Roma minority – is hardly definable. Decades of publications by the Council of Europe and the European Union mainly show conceptual dithering, the various national terminologies do not make things clearer, and many groups' own conceptions of ethnicity add another layer of complexity. The lack of a consistent definition thus raises the question of whether European Roma policy is doomed to failure, as its target is not clearly defined.
