“Aleksandar Marinov, for the first time ever, critically analyses the ambivalent character of Romanipe, shows its development and transformations, and also points to structural elements in Romanipe which [have] appeared as a result of internalisation of the images projected on Roma by surrounding non-Roma populations.” • Elena Marushiakova, University of St Andrews


At present, Roma are an integral part of Europe, though they face structural and social inequalities and different forms of exclusion and discrimination. Inward Looking seeks to understand the relationship between Romani identity, performance and migration. Particularly, it studies the idea of ‘Romanipe’ through the prism of the personal accounts of Romani migrants. It also seeks to understand the relationships between the Romani groups in Europe, due to their increased travel and convergence, and predict the effects of migration on (new) Romani consciousness. The findings are based on qualitative data gathered from Romani migrants from three towns in Bulgaria.

Aleksandar G. Marinov’s background in political science, international relations, human geography, and history as well as his personal Romani heritage have led him to study Roma issues. He is currently a research fellow in Roma Studies at the University of St Andrews.
