This paper will attempt a concise statement of the changes in the cognitive universe of both the “Western” capitalist, and state socialist worlds which permitted the emergence of a new Romani intelligentsia in Europe after the Second World War, and speculate on effects of this on Romani populations outside of Europe, and on the continuing challenges posed to this new intelligentsia by the collapse of state socialism in Europe after 1989, and the dysjunction between the consciousness of Romani intelligentsias, and the social pressures of mass education and assimilative socio-economic policy on those Roma/Gypsies/Travellers who are still subject to social and often spatial segregation.
