Romani Studies

Romani law in the Timiş County Giambaş community

Romani Studies (2009), 19, (2), 87–101.

Abstract

Scholarship on Romani law, and in particular the "Gypsy court", has developed in recent years. One recent study has offered a typology grounding the presence of a court system in those Romani groups which speak "New Vlax" dialects of Romani and which have a nomadic or semi-nomadic recent past. The present essay offers new research testing this thesis. The group at issue indeed speaks a dialect of Romani linked to the Romania-oriented dialect groups, but appears to lack a recent history of nomadism. Other aspects of Romani law in the context of the particular Romani group at issue are also discussed.
