Constructing Roma Migrants: European Narratives and Local Governance
We are proud to share the IMISCOE volume on 'Constructing Roma Migrants', an open access book that has been awarded the 2016 IMISCOE Book competition prize, providing a cross-disciplinary insight and policy analysis into the effects of European legal and political frameworks on the life of ‘Roma migrants'.
Edited by our former Marie Curie fellow, Stefano Piemontese and Tina Magazzini, members of the INTEGRIM Marie Curie Alumni Association. The book has chapters by current and former CEU Center for Policy Studies researchers, Vera Messing and Joanna Kostka.
This open access book presents a cross-disciplinary insight and policy analysis into the effects of European legal and political frameworks on the life of ‘Roma migrants’ in Europe. It outlines the creation and implementation of Roma policies at the European level, provides a systematic understanding of identity-based exclusion and explores concrete case studies that reveal how integration and immigration policies work in practice. The book also shows how the Roma example might be employed in tackling the governance implications of our increasingly complex societies and assesses its potential and limitations for integration policies of vulnerable groups such as refugees and other discriminated minorities. As such the book will be of interest to academics, practitioners, policy-makers and a wider academic community working in migration, refugee, poverty and integration issues more broadly.
