Languages of publication
Social exclusion is linked to limited opportunities in meeting either individual or social community needs. The most significant factors leading to marginalisation are considered to be poverty, health and wellbeing. Those factors are then linked to the situation of labour market and its indicators such as: unemployment, homelessness and disability. The sitaution of Roma Community in Poland after 1989 was very difficult. It resulted in severe criticisism reports published by international organisations which carried on research on those ethnic miniorities that aplied for UE membership. The first real attemp of how to resolve Roma Coomunity problems was the Pilot Study of Roma Community in Małopolska County in 2001. This program became succesful and was recognised by polish society which resulted in continuing it all over the country. This paper describes the present situation of Roma Community living in Małopolska County, who experienced 13 years of integration practices especially in relation to education, employment and positive attitude coming from the rest of society.
