Roma Rights Review
The Roma Rights Review is the ERRC’s human rights magazine. It is the successor to the Roma Rights Journal which, for over 20 years, was the sole academic journal on human rights issues concerning Roma. The Roma Rights Review was launched in 2018 with the 20th anniversary archive issue, looking back at two decades of the struggle for justice and emancipation, with scores of highlights and excerpts from a distinguished array of contributors to the Journal.
The Roma Rights Review accepts in-depth articles from journalists, academics, Romani activists, and good writers. Our issues are thematic and cover human rights issues, but also include features relating to history, culture and the arts.
