IL DECENTRAMENTO DELLA STRATEGIA NAZIONALE D’INCLUSIONE DEI ROM: UN CAMMINO INCERTO/DECENTRALIZATION IN THE NATIONAL INCLUSION STRATEGY FOR ROM PEOPLE: AN UNCERTAIN PATH

Luciana De Pascale

Abstract


Roma people are the largest transnational ethnic group in Europe, about 12 million people, as well as the most discriminated against. Italy is the only country in Europe where most Roma live in “gypsy camps” segregated from the community. The aim of the article is to analyse the issue of the Roma social inclusion in Italy by reflecting on the socio-political processes that hinder the implementation at local level of the “National Strategy for Roma Integration”. This essay, in particular, presents the first results of an empirical research on implementing the “Strategy” in the City of Naples. The primary objective is to explore the relationship between prejudices, stereotypes and policies in regard to Roma people and to analyse the nature and proliferation of these adversities against the Roma people at a European and national level which then fall back into the local context.
