Thirty years after the collapse of Communism, and at a time of increasing anti-migrant and anti-Roma sentiment, this book analyses how Roma identity is expressed in contemporary Europe. From backgrounds ranging from political theory, postcolonial, cultural and gender studies to art history, feminist critique and anthropology, the contributors reflect on the extent to which a politics of identity regarding historically disadvantaged, racialized minorities such as the Roma can still be legitimately articulated.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is a well-researched, dense academic book, representing the many strategies of and efforts made by Roma people, especially women and youth, to demand equality and justice as well access to the tools that will lead to economic freedom. This book is for agents of change and organizers as much as for students of political theory...... Highly recommended." * Choice

"This volume is a thoughtful and compelling read addressing some of the most persistent issues facing Roma communities in Europe today... provides the reader with a detailed and nuanced portrait of contemporary Roma life in Europe." * Aidan McGarry, Loughborough University

"An important contribution to Romani Studies, which gives valuable context to new directions and strategies being adopted by Roma in the spheres of identity, social movement activism and cultural performance. Essential reading for campaigners, researchers and practitioners." * Andrew Ryder, Corvinus University Budapest
