Affirmative Action in Romania's Higher Education: Roma Students' Perceived Meanings and Dilemmas
Pantea, Maria-Carmen
British Journal of Sociology of Education, v36 n6 p896-914 2015
This qualitative paper explores Roma students' perceptions on the policy of assigning "special places" for Roma in Romania's universities. Findings suggest that Roma see themselves as occupying a precarious social space, concerned not as much to hide perceived merit violation but to handle (alleged) inadequacies given by their stigmatized ethnicity.
