Summary "Ilona Klimova-Alexander brings Europe's largest transnational and most marginalized ethnic minority, the Roma (Gypsies), into the discourse of international relations. The book describes and analyzes the attempts of the Romani activists to gain voice in world politics by interacting with the United Nations (UN) system and explores their capabilities and impact. Based largely on primary resources and fieldwork, it will engage international relations scholars, political scientists and those concerned with social movements and ethnic and racial studies."--BOOK JACKET
