Sustainable and Solidary Education

Reflections and Practices

Edited By Monica Tilea, Oana-Adriana Duţă and Alina Stela Reşceanu

This volume of thematic studies offers multifaceted interpretations of education for sustainable and solidary development (ESSD). It is a joint work of academics, teachers and researchers covering the domain of education from the perspective of economy, social sciences, language studies, communication and pedagogy. The authors propose a range of reflections and empirical studies which refer to: various means and methods for an effective teaching/learning process; transversal skills related to ESSD; and the importance of financial resources and quality assurance in education. The unitary and original endeavour of this volume establishes a common meeting point for devising up-to-date methods and practices across disciplines, with a view to supporting sustainable and solidary education.

Ensuring the Access of Roma People to Higher Education: a Case Study at the University of Craiova

Abstract: In order to ensure the integration of the Roma people in society, the Romanian education system provides special places for students of the Roma ethnic group at BA level in Romanian universities. At the University of Craiova, there are Roma students enlisted in different study programmes. In this article, we start from a statistical analysis of the Roma students registered during 2014–2016 at this higher education institution, and discuss the options of these students. The aim is to correlate their options with their cultural profile. Therefore, our study will assess the importance of the Roma ethnic identity in choosing an academic study domain and a subsequent career in Romanian society.

Keywords: Roma people, integration, higher education.
