Social Exclusion and Economic Integration Strategies of Roma in Turkey

My research concerns the exclusionary processes against Roma in Turkey, as well as thestrategies developed by Roma in reaction to these processes and in the context of rapid socio-economic change. I focus primarily on the economic realm and analyze access to employment and social security, social inclusion programs, as well as household financial practices.
