Political discourse

The objective of this workpackage is to explore themes, resources and possible effects of political narratives regarding the Roma on attitudes held by the general public. We carry out comparative content analysis of political discourse in five countries (Hungary, Slovakia, Romania, Ireland, France). This analysis will reveal dominant themes and their discursive resources, and unveil their impact on anti-discrimination efforts. Drawing on this evidence, we will experimentally test how the interventions can reduce prejudice by helping people resist to consent to prejudicial, discriminatory or dehumanizing discursive trends, such as hate speech. In these experiments, we will focus on the link between discriminative vs. non-discriminative norms and prejudice. The results will bring knowledge about the country-specific dominant normative contexts regarding the Roma, and help us to identify and tailor key issues that anti-discrimination interventions need to address in each country.
