Abstract

Mobilizing Romani Ethnicity: Romani Political Activism in Argentina, Colombia, and Spain uncovers an under-researched topic, Roma activism in South America, and compares this to Roma political activism in Spain. The trans-continental nature of the comparison is welcome as it reveals processes, institutions, and agency in diverse contexts and how these contexts create opportunities for Roma activism. Almost all studies of/on Roma communities focus on Europe, for obvious reasons, as this is where the largest Romani populations are to be found. Through its novel epistemology and methodology it challenges the Euro-centrism inherent in Romani Studies forcing us to look beyond our immediate surroundings.
