The current project proposal aims to study how master concepts, related to Roma inclusion (as minority rights, antidiscimination, representation) in post-socialist Bulgaria, have been instrumentalized in exclusionary practices today. It will study the processes of racialization of the Roma in post-socialist Bulgaria and the coupling of racialized communities with poverty, which contributes to the discrediting of welfare and the stigmatization of its "undeserving" recipients.
