In the article we present, the results of the qualitative part of the research program diagnosing Polish - Roma relations in Żywiec in Silesia (Poland) during 2004–2011. The research program aimed at identifying the actual situation of the Roma community, their perception by the Poles and potential areas of conflict between the groups. Official statistics were analyzed to determine the problems and needs of the Roma community in reference to the problems and needs of the Polish community (data from Police, Municipal Police, Social Welfare, labor and probation officers), so as press releases, websites and reports of non-governmental organizations referring to the situation of the Roma community or Polish-Roma relations in the region. Results of the review indicate that the two communities live in isolation from one another; poor living conditions of the Roma are accompanied by the perception of the group as poor and economically disadvantaged. There is no pertaining conflict between the Roma and non- Roma community in Żywiec but there are periodically recurring tensions between groups associated with ad hoc situations, for instance allocation of goods (social housing).
