Romani Studies Program

The Romani Studies Program responds to the growing interest for expertise and interdisciplinary knowledge in Roma related issues by offering an advanced certificate program for MA and PhD students who are enrolled in other CEU programs. The advanced certificate program offers an opportunity to engage with broader theories, policies, legislations and research methodologies which are fundamental to understand the complex situation of Roma and other racialized groups and the multifaceted challenges that policy makers are facing in designing equality, social justice and social inclusion policies. The courses will cover theoretical and policy issues faced by Roma ranging from identity to race/ ethnicity, gender, sexuality, from diversity to racialization, from poverty to racial discrimination, from structural discrimination and inequality to political mobilization and participation, and from recognition to redistributive justice. Our curriculum pays a specific attention to studying the racialization of Roma, the social construction of racial differences and its relation to the perpetuation of racism and racial domination.
