Abstract

This paper presents a confrontation between the institutional sphere of the dominant social ethics with the subjective sphere of the particular beneficiary involved in the study and understanding of the socially vulnerable Roma situation. At the level of institutional efforts, the thesis presents general theoretic recommendations on housing the de-privileged social groups aiming to materialize the social and system integrations. At the level of strategic planning, by studying the life experience of the Roma in Belgrade, the thesis describes the life of the Roma population within the community through the aspects that the Republic strategy framework refers to, like preservation of the cultural characteristic, housing, education and employment,. The intertwined results of research at both levels show that life within the Roma community is an objective resource for profiling the model of Roma housing as type of a support to general integration in the society.

Keywords
