Key factors for success and continuity of schooling paths of Gypsies: individuals, families and public policy

This research intends to advance in the sociological knowledge about the impact of social policies on the schooling of Gypsies/Roma women and men, and their effects on individuals and on Gypsies families. The search aims to contribute to a better understanding of the Portuguese Gypsies; in fact, studies about Gypsies have gained an increasing importance in Portugal in recent years. However it is noted the persistence of social regularities associating Gypsies to poverty, racism and social exclusion, as there are in some countries worsening situations of racism with the expulsion of Gypsies.
