Prof: ‘Romani misunderstood’

A NEW study has revealed that more contact between Romani communities and the general public would help break down social barriers.

Prof Yaron Matras, expert director of the Romani Project at the university, revealed the results of his research at a special event on Thursday 10 June 2010.
