Beschreibungen

This book deals with the social exclusion of Romanies (‘Gypsies’) in Italy. Based on interviews with Romani individuals, institutional and Civil Society Organisations’ (CSOs) representatives, participant observation and a broad range of secondary sources, the volume focuses on the conditions of those living in Rome’s urban slums and on the recent implementation of the so-called ‘Emergenza Nomadi’ (Nomad Emergency). The enactment of this extraordinary measure concealed the existence of a long-established institutional tradition of racism and control directed at Romanies. It was not the result of a sudden, unexpected situation which required an immediate action, as the declaration of an ‘emergency’ might imply, but rather of a precise government strategy. By providing an investigation into the interactions between Romanies, local institutions and CSOs, this book will deliver a new perspective on the Romani issue by arguing that the ‘camp’ is not only a tool for institutional control and segregation, but also for ‘resistance’, as well as a huge business in which everyone plays their part.
1. Inside 'campi nomadi': The Italian Approach to the Global Shanty Town Development. 2. The Institutional and Spatial Segregation of Romanies in Italy.3. The Paradoxes of the Italian Approach Towards the Romani People.4. The Business of the Camps During the 'Nomad Emergency'.5. Between Self-Determination and 'Collective-Identity Closure'.6.

Gives a voice to one of the most marginalized populations in Europe, the Romani people. Avoids emphasis on the superior power of the State and its sub-contracted CSOs, providing a more nuanced analysis of the power dynamicsObserves and analyses the existence of a democratic deficit in the way these actors operate and co-operate with each other
