Responses to the status quo and the emergence of EU discourse on Roma In the 1990s, as a response to the deteriorating socio-economic conditions of millions of Roma and to growing anti-Gypsy violence, human rights and minority rights discourses and regimes emerged, consolidating alongside an embryonic Romani political movement (Guy 2001; Kovats 2003; Pogany 2004; Trehan 2001, 2009; Vermeersch 2001, 2005, 2006). In line with the practices of primarily 8 Nando Sigona and Nidhi Trehan American human rights INGOs (International Non-Governmental Organizations) and foundations wh ich played a major role in this process, these rights discourses tended to emphasize the primacy of civil and political rights, at the expense of economic and social rights (which only emerged after 2000 vis-a-vis Roma).

To make matters worse, governmental bodies established to take responsibility for coordinating Roma programmes had insuffieient status and authority to influence major ministries. Nevertheless, in spite of the lack of all-embracing, integrated strategies and although '[r]esearch ha[d] been almost totally ignored in PHARE programmes' (EMS 2004b: 27), attempts were often made to implement overly optimistie schemes in a top-down way without sufficient planning, adequate resources or appropriate consultation.
