The following note provides an overview of the debate centred on a 2005 course textbook which was written by Géza Jeszenszky for courses he taught at the Corvinus University of Budapest. In the text book a claim was made that many Roma are mentally ill on account of Roma culture sanctioning incestuous relations. The note refutes this claim and can find no scientific evidence to support such assertions.
