Reflections on Roma and Youth Development

(p.197) 11 Out of the Margins
Roma Minority Youth Across Cultural Contexts

Peter Vermeersch

Oxford University Press

This chapter starts from the observation that, to address the destitution of any community successfully, the sociopolitical interactions that exist around that community need to be addressed as well. It offers three reasons why youth development policies for young Roma who live in poverty may have an impact on these interactions by changing patterns of social mobility among children and adolescents to facilitate greater, large-scale change. These policies may be pivotal in bringing about new experiences and perceptions of Roma identity. And finally, they may inform and help expand international actions on Roma. By studying the opportunities inherent in youth development initiatives, researchers may gain a deeper understanding not only of the dynamics of exclusion and marginalization facing many Roma but also of the potential positive change within and around their communities.

Keywords:   Roma, positive youth development, education, nationalism, marginalization, identity, social mobility
