Capitalising Public Narratives in the organising of Grassroots Roma Women

Project description

Roma women as activists

Despite ongoing mobilisations, the Roma women’s movement has faced obstacles preventing it from becoming better organised. Scant scientific literature has yet analysed how existing networks of solidarity, support, or respectful listening between Roma women and other non-Roma allies can be turned into a better-organised movement, advancing the enforcement of their fundamental rights. The EU-funded Narratives4Change project will examine the Public Narrative approach as a promising theoretical and practical model of the leadership practice and organising, inquiring on how when applied by civic associations it contributes to activate members’ agency and their strategic capacity to achieve social and political impact. Drawing on this analysis, Narratives4Change will contribute novel knowledge about the conditions that need to exist in order for the Public Narrative model to be capitalised by Roma women associations in Spain, informing how to advance in better organising the Roma women movement in Europe.
