66th Newsletter on Social Inclusion and Poverty Reduction
Slavica Denić, Roma Inclusion Coordinator,
Social Inclusion and Poverty Reduction Unit of the Government of the Republic of Serbia
The Social Inclusion and Poverty Reduction Unit has published the book Romology, representing the efforts of author Rajko Đurić to promote this important interdisciplinary field. Romology is intended equally for the Roma and non-Roma community. In addition to the term, definition and development of romology as a scientific discipline, the book elaborates on the culture, identity, history (where an important place is reserved for the Roma holocaust), grammar and standardisation of the Roma language. With its comprehensive approach and analysis of various aspects of Roma life, this book represents a valuable starting point for research that could be of particular use as part of the academic programmes of higher education institutions in our country.

Families and children face challenges on a daily basis in their pursuit of success at school, as well as in trying to fit in the school’s context as a part of the child’s broader social integration. The authors of the Tutoring Model of inclusive education are of the opinion that the gap between school and the community opens when the reasons for learning and social integration difficulties are looked for primarily within parents and children, instead of in the community itself.
