The text of Aydan McGarry brings to light a topic which, despite its relevance in contemporary society, has not attracted much scholarly attention: Romaphobia.

Abstract

The text of Aydan McGarry brings to light a topic which, despite its relevance in contemporary society, has not attracted much scholarly attention: Romaphobia. As the author emphasizes in the title, Romaphobia is the last acceptable form of racism; a fact that is sadly observable not only in the increasing xenophobic attacks on Roma all over Europe, but also in the general tendency of justifying and legitimizing racist comments towards this community within media and political debates.
