    2. 2. Romania & Eastern Europe Romania has the largest number of Roma inhabitants in Europe. The economy of transition produced a decline in their housing condition, leading to an acute social exclusion. The racist attitude that forms the background of urban decisions can be seen today in the alarming development of the shantytowns surrounding the Romanian towns. The post revolution era reversed the process that defined the communist period – after the forced settlement of the nomads, the gypsies were the first to loose their jobs and to be evicted. This leaded to the formation of numerous micro-slums around every Romanian City and later on to the migration of these formation to Western Europe. The vast majority of the interventions aiming to improve their housing conditions leade in fact to the formation of new ghettos.Mimiu – Ploiesti, FierarilorStreet European Research Conference, Budapest, 17th September 2010 UNDERSTANDING HOMELESSNESS AND HOUSING EXCLUSION IN ENHR THE NEW EUROPEAN CONTEXT
