of Roma through a kind of quota system exist at the level of local government
in Hungary and in the national elections in Romania, and a number of

legislatives and in the European Parliament

Abstract

In March 2014, the e-mail
list of the European Academic Network on Romani
Studies1 hosted a discussion on definitions of the population known as ‘Roma’.
It began when one of the subscribers to the list – which at the time brought
together some 350 academics who specialised in Romani/Gypsy studies – asked
for reactions to two generalisations which she came across while preparing a
legal review of a document on cultural rights: (1) that all Roma speak a variety
of the same language, Romanes; and (2) that Roma generally consider themselves
to be a nation. Some two-dozen
scholars posted their reactions, which
together offer a fairly exhaustive summary of contemporary views on the subject
