The Romani Studies Program (RSP) at Central European University cordially invites you to the launch of the second issue of the journal Critical Romani Studies (CRS).

Critical Romani Studies (CRS) is an international, interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal providing a forum for activist-scholars to critically examine racial oppressions, different forms of exclusion, inequalities, and human rights abuses of Roma. Without compromising academic standards of evidence collection and analysis, the Journal seeks to create a platform to critically engage with academic knowledge production, and generate critical academic and policy knowledge targeting—amongst others—scholars, activists, and policymakers.

The second issue contains four critical papers on policymaking (by Marko Stenroos, Jonathan McCombs, Silvia Cittadini, and Solvor Mjøberg Lauritzen); three pioneering articles in which non-Romani scholars reflect on their own position, privilege, and responsibility (by Carol Silverman, Lucie Fremlova, and Jekatyerina Dunajeva); a groundbreaking study on the genealogy of Romani stereotypes in the Louvre and Prado collections (by Sarah Carmona); a review of the play Roma Armee (by Katarzyina Pabijanek); the review Giovanni Picker’s recent book, Racial Cities: Governance and the Segregation of Romani People in Urban Europe (by Angéla Kóczé); and the review of Andrew Ryder’s Sites of Resistance. Gypsies, Roma and Travellers in School, Community and the Academy (by Miklós Hadas).
