Between Resistance and Dominant Ideology: Two NGOs’ Efforts to Communicate the Movement for Roma Rights

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper offers the case study of two NGOs that, in the course of nearly two decades, have tailored and improved their communication efforts so that politicians, governments, and international organizations hear, and do something about, the plight of the Roma, the most discriminated against European minority. This study analyzes activist publications for discourses about the Roma and it suggests that, at the same time as the two NGOs speak for the promotion of Roma rights, they each slip into othering the Roma, drawing from mainstream discourses of discrimination. The case studies illustrate both contemporary trends and changes in the way European politics engage with the Roma problem and the difficulty (and sometimes impossibility) of representing a minority group in a truly resistant fashion, outside dominant ideologies.
