FXB Center for Health and Human Rights
Jimena Villar de Onis is conducting research at the FXB Center for Health and Human Rights in Paris, France. Her research is focused on access to health, education, housing, civic engagement, and economic development of the Roma people living in Paris. Jimena is collecting data from interviews with Roma mothers and other key stakeholders, such as government officials, schools, health centers, etc. She is analyzing the data to measure and determine gaps in access to basic human rights for the Roma population. Based on her findings, Jimena is creating a report that makes policy recommendations for improving their condition. Ultimately, this is the first step towards bettering the life of Roma mothers and the Roma people. Jimena is also working with Médecins du Monde, who is hosting her during her time in Paris.
