Accepted Paper:

Experiences of effective collaborative work with Roma and Sinti representatives in contemporary Italy  
Stefania Pontrandolfo (Università degli Studi di Verona)

Paper short abstract:

The paper presents a particularly effective cooperation of anthropologists with Roma and Sinti. The paper is based on experiences in research, public engagement and dissemination activities conducted at the Verona University since 2013.

Paper long abstract:

The paper focus on a case of successful collaborative work conducted by some members, Roma and non-Roma researchers, of the "Centre for Ethnographic Research and Applied Anthropology (CREAa)" at the Verona University (Italy) since 2013.

Understanding why some collaborations are more positive and productive (even within certain limits), than others is important because it allows us to see characteristics of an effective collaborative work more clearly. The paper explores the collaboration practices adopted, how trusting relations were built, what the collaboration limitations were and which convergences were gradually acquired over time, to conclude that what made this collaboration not only possible but also effective was the fundamental convergence and alignment of political positions and research objectives among the members of the research group.
