Romani culture

Romani groups

In recent years the name Roma, which is the ethno-cultural self-designation of most of those perceived by outsiders as ‘Gypsies’, has come to dominate the official political discourse, at least in Europe, and has ac­quired the legitimacy of political correctness. It is a complicated undertaking to further differentiate between the various Romani subgroups spread all over Europe and the world. Yet, it is also an important undertaking if we are to develop a better understanding of Roma.
