The European “Boogie Man” Complex:
Challenging Antigypsyism through Non-formal Education, an educational toolkit
Phiren Amenca published together with the Youth Department of the Council of Europe an educational toolkit on challenging antigypsyism through non-formal education in the context of the Roma Youth Action Plan. The toolkit raises key issues such as the concept of antigypsyism, history and narratives about Roma, migration issues, and the challenge of comic books for Roma people.
Moreover, it provides several educational activities to challenge antigypsyism, for instance a resource-based workshop on Roma history narratives, a role-play of a stakeholders’ conference on the migration issue, and a discussion on minority strategies based on the X-Men comics/movie drawing parallels to Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X in the U.S. civil rights movement.
