English term or phrase: laconic political reaction
One major factor behind the somewhat ***laconic political reaction*** to segregated schooling is the notion that the exclusion of the Romani communities in Europe is a legitimated consequence of “natural segregation”.

Wie würdet ihr "laconic" im Zusammenhang mit dem (später im Text angeprangerten) Ausbleiben ernsthafter politischer Maßnahmen übersetzen?

Notes to answerer
Asker: Danke, Stephan. An "zurückhaltend" hatte ich auch gedacht, aber "laconic" ist doch deutlich subjektiver gefärbt.

Asker: Pardon - Sebastian ;-).
