Over the last few years, the “Roma question” has acquired an increasingly important space in the European public agenda, especially following the enlargement to the East of the European Union. However, the conditions of the Roma remain problematic in Italy as in other countries. Integration policies are ineffective unless they are preceded by a solid information and knowledge work on the processes of Roma inclusion. The book presents eight studies on social inclusion laboratories which analyze policies, scenarios, dynamics and outcomes.

An essay that traces the events of the Roma minority in twentieth century Romania. The author, through the analysis of archival documents and thanks to an intense ethnographic experience, draws a picture of the policies of inclusion and exclusion towards Roma in Romania. In the 1930s some activists inaugurated the season of inter-war Roma associations, giving rise to apolitical organizations soon torn apart by schisms and vehement campaigns. With the coming to power of Antonescu, in a Romania torn by territorial downsizing and revisionist threats, the nomadic groups and undesirable settlements, between June and September 1942, will be rounded up and evacuated to Transnistria. The policies of the popular democracies, in the half century of real socialism, will aim at the cultural genocide of the Roma, denying the principles of the Romanesque system.

The volume aims to study the topic of immigration in relation to policies of access, inclusion and recognition of diversity, both in the political and educational area, through the “voice” of those who, for different reasons, work in educational strong migratory flow. All in the conviction that the revaluation of subjective experience can contribute to hinder that “stammering”, full of ambivalences and contradictions, provoked by the presence of the Other.(Losi, 2010).
