Social Inclusion special issue on Roma released

social inclusionTalking about Roma: Implications for Social Inclusion is a title of a new Social Inclusion special issue. The issue was edited by Dr. Eben Friedman on behalf of the ECMI.

The contributions to this special issue critically examine public discourses from throughout Europe which are ostensibly aimed at promoting the social inclusion of Roma. The articles focus on various geographical areas within Europe as well as on various topics within the wider issue of Roma rights and policy-making.

Whereas the first four articles deal directly with issues of definition in relation to Roma, a second group of contributions compares developments across multiple countries or institutions. The last four articles each treat a single country, with the final article narrowing the focus further to a single city.

The special issue features an introduction by Dr. Eben Friedman , guest editor of the issue and the selection of academic articles as well as two book reviews.
