Book Launch: The Gypsy ‘Menace’: Populism and the New Anti-Gypsy Politics

The Gypsy ‘Menace’: Populism and the New Anti-Gypsy Politics, Edited by Michael Stewart, Published by Hurst

Across Europe, Roma and Gypsies are suffering increasing intolerance and hostility. The social and economic shifts of the last thirty years, the resurgence of populist politics, and a noticeable increase in inter-ethnic violence and hate crimes has shaped the political debate regarding Roma.

At this book launch, Editor Michael Stewart discusses how to reset the agenda for thinking about Europe’s largest minority, analysing not only the challenges a liberal, tolerant politics confronts but also suggesting ways of acting against the new xenophobia.

The event will take place on Thursday 27th September at the Wiener Library, 29 Russell Square  London WC1B 5DP.

Admission is free, but please email the Library  (infoatwienerlibrarydotcodotuk?subject=Book%20Launch%3A%2019dot9dot2012)   or call 020 7636 7247 to reserve a space.
