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.

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.
