INTEGRIM was at the workshop for researchers and practitioners “PROTECTING AND INCLUDING ‘NEW’ AND ‘OLD’ MINORITIES: OPPORTUNITIES, CHALLENGES, SYNERGIES” organized by Roberta Medda-Windischer (EURAC) in Bolzano/Bozen on February 27, 2015.
Based on their on-going PhD theses, the INTEGRIM research fellows Tina Magazzini and Stefano Piemontese presented a paper titled “Cha(lle)nges in diversity management as a consequence of westward Roma migration in the EU: the case of Spain”.
The authors also drew upon findings from the 2011-2012 research project “Evaluating the Six Years of the Comprehensive Plan for the Roma Population in Catalonia” (EMIGRA and FAGiC) as well as from data collected during the workshop for scholars, policy makers, and NGOs “Bridging the Gap between Policy Making and Social Research. Strengths and challenges of the policies for Gitanos/Roma in Spain” (Barcelona, October 17, 2014) co-organized by Taller ACSA, the EMIGRA Research Group (Autonomous University of Barcelona) and the authors with the financial support of the European Academic Network on Romani Studies.
Thanks to Roberta Medda-Windischer for this opportunity, and also to all participants for the feedback and the outstanding quality of their presentations!
