ABSTRACT
To start with, this paper intends to describe the economic and socio cultural situation of the Roma in Romania. Then it analyses the particular aspects and the complex social process of including the Roma in the Romanian society nowadays. We try to identify the main causes which led to this situation. How it was born, how it was maintained and how the economic and socio cultural gap between the Roma and the main population deepened. Another main objective is to identify in Romanian society the main stereotypes, prejudices and forms of discrimination regarding the Roma. The conclusion is that in the Romanian society, the social inclusion of the Roma is a process that is far from being closed. A more firm and systematic mobilisation and accountability of all agencies of socialisation is needed in the elaboration and application of programs meant to fight prejudices and ethnic discrimination.
