Child of Many Worlds: Focus on the Problem of Ethnic Minorities

Edited By Hanna Liberska and Marzanna Farnicka

The sense of isolation and even rejection is well known to people from minority groups, including ethnic minorities. When it comes to children from ethnic minorities, the quick identification of the problem by teachers is of great importance. Anyway the problem must be realised not only by the educators and parents of the children of the minority, but also by the parents representing the cultural majority. The presented approach to the problem of ethnic minorities is not only oriented towards the social exclusion of the ethnic minorities, but tries to create a comprehensive strategy for dealing with «new faces of exclusion». The authors describe ethnic minorities in the countries of the Visegrád Group and try to define their cultural and national identity from the perspective of intercultural psychology.

Introduction

The present study analyzes the situation of the Roma population in three small towns in Hajdú-Bihar County. The study is based on research commissioned by the municipalities in 2004.1 The situation of the Roma is based on an analysis of the statistical database of the research final report, which, however, was only one dimension of the total 2004 study. The study provides a descriptive analysis of the results of the empirical research. The social situation and health state of the Roma are discussed using a structural approach. Due to the aims of the study and the data collected, a cultural approach and explanation was not included as part of this study.
