Abstract: The article is a brief reflection on the positon and political activities of those Roma who are poolitically active and strive for a better situation for the larger group of Roma. The article identifies a tension within the Romani movement between demands for recognition and demands for equality. It discusses some implications of this tension for the development of movement strategies of and for the Roma. Finally, it highlights some implications for outsiders who want to write about the Roma: funding institutions, observers, journalists, and researchers.
