To understand how Romanies are being excluded from the hegemonic French norms, the matters of education, employment, housing, mobility, deportations and gender will be explored through means of first hand interviews and fieldwork conducted in Ille-et-Vilaine, supplemented by media reports and previous research regarding exclusion and Romanies.
