Regimes, States, and Minorities 35 years there were significant differences in state policies toward minorities between East European states.
These policies are going to pose a major financial burden on East European states and societies, but this burden is likely to be much larger if action is delayed. In the last part of this chapter I recommend some policy options that will likely contribute to and accelerate the Gypsies' societal integration.
