In January 2022, the Center for Policy Studies (CPS) published the book “From the Shadow to the Limelight: The Value of Civil Society Policy Monitoring Knowledge in Roma Equality Struggles”. The volume provides critical reflections on contemporary practices of civil society monitoring of policy formation and implementation in the field of Roma equality across Europe. The chapters presenting critical insights in the Roma Civil Monitor 2017-2020 were written by activists, experts, and scholars who contributed to the initiative in various forms and ventured to craft ideas in collaborative authorship. Contributors discuss the co-production of policy monitoring knowledge to a variety of audiences by working across different platforms, alliances, and modes of articulating critical reflections.
The senior adviser of the Central Council of German Sinti and Roma, Jonathan Mack, contributed a paper on “Advancing the understanding of Antigypsyism and the exclusion of Roma through civil monitoring”.
