Call for Papers: Implications for Social Inclusion of Roma

Inclusion of Roma - European Centre for Minority IssuesThe journal Social Inclusion calls for contributions for an issue on social inclusion of Roma. ECMI represented by Dr Eben Friedman is guest editor of the issue.

A coming issue of Social Inclusion will have the title Talking about Roma: Implications for Social Inclusion. Authors interested in submitting a paper for this special issue are kindly asked to consult the Instructions for Authors of the journal and to send their abstracts by email to Mr. António Vieira on antonio.vieira @ cogitatiopress.com

Abstracts are to be forwarded between 1 and 8 October 2014, while full papers must be forwarded between 26 January and 1 February 2015.

Addressing today’s Roma discourse

Talking about Roma: Implications for Social Inclusion will address various aspects of the relationship between discourses on and the social inclusion of Roma.

The contributions to this special issue must critically examine current public discourses ostensibly aimed at promoting the social inclusion of Roma, attending to the liabilities of these discourses and exploring possible alternatives for avoiding backsliding on human rights commitments.

At present, while official discourse calling for the elimination of Roma – whether through mass killing or by abolishing cultural distinctions – has largely given way to approaches explicitly aimed at inclusion and emphasizing Roma’s rights as individuals and as members of a minority or tying future improvements in the situation of Roma to economic benefits for entire societies, the coexistence of these two types of ostensibly more inclusive approaches is not necessarily an easy one.

Moreover, both are arguably compatible with debates on the possibility and desirability of the social inclusion of Roma.

About ECMI Kosovo

ECMI Kosovo became active in Kosovo as a field office of European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI) in 2001.

After Kosovo declared independence in February 2008, ECMI Kosovo became a locally registered NGO in July of that same year, while maintaining its co-operation with ECMI and thus continuing to benefit from international oversight, specialized expertise and comparative experiences.

ECMI Kosovo’s vision is a stable multi-ethnic Kosovo in which the human and minority rights of members from all communities are realized in line with domestic and international standards.

With a view to contributing to this vision, ECMI Kosovo engages in a wide range of activities aimed at stabilizing inter-ethnic relations and ensuring the effective implementation and functioning of the legal, policy and institutional framework for the protection and promotion of minority rights.

ECMI Working Paper #77 released

ECMI PublicationsDialogue with the unwilling: Addressing minority rights in so-called denial states by ECMI Director Dr Tove Malloy is now issued as ECMI Working Paper #77.

In the European Centre for Minority IssuesWorking Paper #77, Dr Malloy sheds light on the behavior of the so-called “unwilling” or “denial” states in the implementation of minority rights in Europe. These states are Belarus, France and Greece.

The working paper, Dialogue with the unwilling: Addressing minority rights in so-called denial states, consists of an analysis of the monitoring systems to which Belarus, France and Greece are subject – in their capacity as members of the UN.

The focus on the analysis is entirely on the UN since the three countries have not signed up to the European normative framework of minority protection. The fact that Belarus, France and Greece have chosen to stand outside the European minority rights regime explains the often employed though less flattering “denial states” label.

Specifically, the Working Paper #77 explores whether the seemingly unwilling governments of Belarus, France and Greece engage in any dialogue with regard to UN minority rights and protection.

“Seemingly”, because one of Dr Malloy’s conclusions is that “the unwilling are not as unwilling as one might suspect.”

ECMI Director Dr Tove H. Malloy is also heading up the Citizenship & Ethics Cluster @ European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI).

ECMI Working Papers © from European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI)

ECMI Working Papers are written either by the staff of European Centre for Minority Issues or by outside authors commissioned by the Centre. As ECMI does not propagate opinions of its own, the views expressed in any of its publications are the sole responsibility of the author concerned.

The European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI) is a non-partisan institution founded in 1996 by the Governments of the Kingdom of Denmark, the Federal Republic of Germany, and the German State of Schleswig-Holstein.

ECMI was established in Flensburg, at the heart of the Danish-German border region, in order to draw from the encouraging example of peaceful coexistence between minorities and majorities achieved here.

ECMI’s aim is to promote interdisciplinary research on issues related to minorities and majorities in a European perspective and to contribute to the improvement of interethnic relations in those parts of Western and Eastern Europe where ethnopolitical tension and conflict prevail.
