INTERVENTION IN ROMA COMMUNITIES. VOCATIONAL TRAINING AND EMPLOYMENT

Corina Cace

Journal of Community Positive Practices, 2018, issue 3, 66-113

Abstract: The study developed within an integrated program follows the actions carried out on the labour market for the employment of the Roma population. Are these measures effective and respond to the needs of the Roma population or the lack of adequacy to the specifics of the population leads to poor results? Data collection methodology included face-to-face questionnaire interviews with predefined questions, administrated by trained field operators. A total of 112 questionnaires with representatives of the public authorities were also collected. Most of the possible action delivering conclusions and recommendations are strongly related to the specifics of the target group, i.e. adult Roma individuals living in communities with low educational stock, placed too far outside the paths to success of policies and interventions dedicated to vulnerable communities. To their overwhelming majority, both persons and relevant legal community representatives see education/training/improvement one of the few opportunities with success potential, e.g. skilling for as many as possible Roma individuals, coherent programmes for basic education, specific jobs to Roma etc.
