Tittel

The Role of the Romanian Orthodox Church in Social Integration of Roma People: Towards a Participatory Approach

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

The project will initiate, stimulate and sustain Romanian and Norwegian research about the inclusion of the Roma population by focusing on the potential role of the Romanian Orthodox Church (ROC) in relation to the in/exclusion of Roma people. To date, the role of the ROC regarding the exclusion of the Roma people throughout history has not yet been sufficiently studied. The project will contribute to the study of a presumably difficult history, contributing thus to a historical reappraisal of the Roma community in its relation to ROC that has a potential to encourage new good practices. The project will also focus on local case studies of interaction between Roma and the ROC, which will be addressed through participatory approach, both in research methodology and through initiating new practices locally, in concrete contexts. This methodology is known in social work in Romania, but not yet applied and studied in the context of church-related initiatives. Common training seminars in participatory research together with the Norwegian partner institution are a decisive part of the project. The project will thus develop Romanian and Norwegian expertise in methodology with a potential to impact research in social sciences and theology, but also local level inclusion work of Roma people, both in the religious and the secular field. As main religious actor in Romania, the ROC is essential in understanding the mindset of the Romanian majority population with regards to the Roma. By using this role more consciously the ROC has also a huge potential to contribute to the establishment of inclusive practices in the everyday life of people in Romania. The third major contribution of the project is thus to strengthen the theological reflection about the social role of the ROC in general, and for Roma social inclusion in particular. The theological reflections include seminars with orthodox priest, as key persons for changes in the ROC, and development work with local orthodox parishes.
