Title God has forgotten about us Roma- a qualitative study of the Romanian Roma migration to Sweden and the migration as a political action
Author(s) Friberg Jonsson, Olga
Date 2015
English abstract
This qualitative study illustrates the Romanian Roma migration within the framework of the principle free movement in connection to Hannah Arendt’s concept political action. Political action is the main ability of human beings, namely to act, which takes place among people in the public realm to create power. This will be studied in conjunction with the migration as an enactment of rights. The study presents the increasing migration towards Sweden and Western Europe within the free movement, areas of discrimination in Romania concerning the minority group as well as articles with portraits of Romanian Roma migrants. With inspiration from both discourse analysis and content analysis the aim was to study the chosen texts and understand the migration in light of Arendt’s concept. The conclusion is that the migration of the minority group can be claimed to be a political action since the group can be argued to act together as a collective in the public realm to be recognised. Romanian Roma migrants also need political action to regain their ability to act which has been lost, and to act for improvement as an enactment of rights.
