The profound shifts in economic policy towards neoliberal market principles in the 1990s in the former so cialist countries of Europe (economic ‘shock therapy’ in some cases) resulted in catastrophic labor market exclusion and unemployment for many Romani Europeans. Although some scholars have discussed the ad verse implications of liberal democratic transitions in former socialist states for Roma in particular, few have analyzed the impacts of neoliberal ideologies that have dominated European political landscape since the 1980s. Only recently have Western NGOs and governments in Europe begun to discuss the scale of the chal lenges posed by the past two decades of neglect and poor policy interventions vis-à-vis Romani citizens in Europe.
 
Dr. Trehan holds a PhD from the London School of Economics and recently completed an ESRC fellowship at the UCL School of Public Policy/Political Science at the University of London. She will discuss the confluence of neoliberalism, rising poverty and growing violence against Romani citizens of Europe, in an effort to make sense of the paradoxical and puzzling socio-political landscape of contemporary ‘democratic’ Europe.  She has recently published a co-edited volume with Nando Sigona of Oxford University, 'Romani Politics in Contemporary Europe: Poverty, Ethnic Mobilization, and the Neoliberal Order', see further details at:  http://us.macmillan.com/romanipoliticsincontemporaryeurope
