Chalak Kaveh analyses the Norwegian cases of “moral panic” directed against so-called Gypsies in the interwar period as well as today, showing how an “antiziganist arsenal” can be activated under very different historical circumstances. In my remarks, I discuss the paper as an indication that diachronic as well as synchronic comparison might be the most fruitful strategy for antiziganism research.
