Romani culture

The Romani Court

The presence of inter-group self-government, carried out by a specific institution still continues to be, as in the past, a main characteristic feature in the lives of many (but not all) Ro­mani groups in central, eastern and south-eastern Europe. This specific institution appears in a number of rather varied Romani groups who live in these vast territories. It clearly displays their ethnic specificity and defines and distinguishes the separate sub-structures of the Romani ethnic community.
