Minorities in Post-war Central Europe: Migration, Local Negotiation, and Legal Standing

Mgr. Kateřina Čapková, Ph.D. (Institute for Contemporary History)

The activity of this research project includes the organizing of workshops devoted to the legal and social standing of minorities in central Europe in the twentieth century, with special attention to the Jewish and Romani societies. The workshops aim at discussing and challenging historical approaches stemming from the notion of Jews and Roma as only being forever isolated or marginalized within majority societies. The workshops will focus on processes of the negotiation of central policies and migration at the local level, and the experience of Jews and Roma under the Communist regime.
