New publication @ Routledge: The Romani Women’s Movement. Struggles and Debates in Central and Eastern Europe

September 11, 2018

The book is edited by CPS research fellows and affiliates Angela Kocze, Violetta Zentai, Jelena Jovanovic and Eniko Vincze, professor at the Babes-Bolyai University Faculty of European Studies.

The lack of recognition of Romani gender politics in the wider Romani movement and the women’s movements is accompanied by a scarcity of academic literature on Romani women’s mobilization in wider social justice struggles and debates.

The Romani Women’s Movement highlights the role that Romani women’s politics plays in shaping equality related discourses, policies, and movements in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe. Presenting the diverse experiences and voices of Romani women activists, this volume reveals how they translate experiences of structural inequalities into political struggles by defining their own spaces of action; participating in formalized or less formal activist practices, and challenging the agendas and mechanisms of the established Romani and women’s movements.
