Regarding the profile of the victims, it is found that discrimination mostly affects young roma people, between the ages of 16 and 30, and women, with 238 of the 408 victims identified.

Besides, for first time, the report incorporates a chapter on strategic litigation in cases of discrimination, hate crimes and antigypsyism delivered by the Fundación Secretariado Gitano. It describes the twenty cases undertaken and the lessons that can be extracted from their use as a tool for defending the rights of roma people and the principle of non-discrimination.
