WP2 Exploring 'Roma health' stories
Summary of Work Package activities
Working with interpreters to conduct a series of focus group discussions with Czech and Slovak Roma, Polish Roma and Romanian Roma living in the UK.
These focus groups (conducted separately for men and women, younger and older participants) explored what it means for participants to be healthy and what everyday experiences influence this.
Transcribing, translating and analysing focus group data.
Developing an ethics application for the next stage of fieldwork: a combination of life history interviews, go-along interviews and observation with UK-based migrant Czech Roma to explore in depth participants' everyday life experiences (past and present) and how these are shape their health and wellbeing.
Developing a more 'light touch' approach to replicate these methods in the Czech Republic.
Comparing and contrasting these 'Roma health' 'stories' across settings.
