Race, migration and neoliberalism: distorted notions of Romani migration in European public discourses

ABSTRACT: This article analyzes the migration of Roma based on recent public,
academic, policy and political debates in connection with two
specific case studies in France and Italy. Moreover, it aims to
understand how contemporary racialized discourses and neoliberal
social and political forces (re)create Roma as a racialized internal
‘other’ to legitimize subtle anti-Romani politics in Europe. By doing
that, it argues that the current migration of Roma cannot be
understood apart from the proliferation of the hegemonic neoliberal
ideology that facilitates the racialization of Roma and normalizes
their social exclusion in Europe. Moreover, it explores the role of
neoliberalism in the racialization and subjugation of Roma in Europe.
