ROMA: A Discussion of Diversity and the Treatment of Minorities in Europe (CanopyLAB)
Learning about the Roma experience in Europe is not only about learning history. It is about understanding the presence, and it is also an insight into a common European future. Konstanty Gebert analyses the Roma people’s past and present and discusses issues of race, identity, integration and discrimination that are at the forefront of contemporary European politics.

Who are the Roma (also known as Romani) people? And why is this question important? During this 4-week course, distinguished scholar, journalist and activist Konstanty Gebert analyses the experience of the Roma people of Europe starting from the Porajmos - the Roma Holocaust (also known as Pharrajimos, or Porrajmos). Often called a forgotten chapter in European history, the Porajmos is important to not only the Roma but also European history and identity at large, because the Roma are fundamentally European people.




Konstanty Gebert is a Jewish activist and one of the most notable war correspondents of various Polish daily newspapers. He is an associate fellow at the European Council for Foreign Relations and a special advisor on international affairs with the educational organisation Humanity in Action.
