Conferenza 1 e 2 settembre
Università di Verona, online international conference

The conference is recognized as professional development for members of the ANPIA – Associazione Nazionale Professionale Italiana di Antropologia.

Conflicts and their resolution strategies have always been the focus of so-called Romani studies. Romani group anthropology has especially been dealing with the topic from different perspectives, also in light of theories and methodologies developed by anthropology of law. Initially, legal anthropologists studied the Roma’s conflict resolution strategies following a substantial approach, i.e., by regarding them as segments of unwritten codes (better known as customary laws) that are independent of standard state law. Further anthropological reflection concerning inner conflict resolutions has subsequently enriched the above approach by trying to draw a line between legal/formal and non-legal/informal strategies. Lastly, post-colonial interpretation of intercultural conflicts has questioned this phenomenon and shifted the focus from the legal anthropological level of inner norms to the political level of public recognition of non-state legal systems.

This conference reopens the historical debate on conflict resolution strategies that Roma have developed adding new and important contributions concerning key aspects of the phenomenon. It particularly regards the subtle continuum of possible strategies and their multiple levels of formality and informality. By looking at the relationships that exist within Roma communities, between different Roma groups and between Roma and non-Roma societies, the conference also offers new crucial thoughts on how to answer questions that are still pending both for Romani group anthropology and anthropology of law: what pragmatically is the resolution of an interindividual conflict? How does an interindividual conflict articulate with inter-community conflicts? How and how much do diverse political ideologies affect such conflicts?

The conference is organized by Grégoire Cousin, Giorgia Decarli and Stefania Pontrandolfo for the Centre for Ethnographic Research and Applied Anthropology “Francesca Cappelletto” (Human Sciences Department – University of Verona).

The zoom webinar conference is free of charge but participants are required to register in advance.
