          Abstract

          Objective: The article is aimed at analyzing the degree of unemployment of the Roma minority in selected European countries. Design: Synoptic study.Participants: Research data acquired from specialized databases for 1990-2018. Methods: Meta-analysis.Results: The results show the lack of availability of data on the target set in most European countries, except for post-communist countries. The unemployment of the Roma minority has no relation at all to the general unemployment; it is always many times higher; it is primarily related to the exclusion of the Roma. Slight variation in the unemployment development can be seen in individual years. Conclusion: In the first place, unemployment in segregated localities must be dealt with. This article is aimed at analyzing the degree of unemployment of the Roma minority in selected European countries. It is a meta-analysis of existing studies and reports. We used specialized databases as a source and focused on data from 1990 to 2018. For the Slovak Republic, we also found predictive data for the development of the Roma unemployment. Studies dealing with the Roma minority are often qualitative and their results are limited to stating that the degree of Roma unemployment is higher than that of the majority population without stating any specific numbers. Additionally, many countries consider monitoring of the Roma minority as an ethnically separated group as an ethically and politically inadmissible thing. Therefore, differing data on their socio-economic situation are completely absent. If we want to deal with the unemployment of the Roma we must first allow for the fact that in most countries it is a population significantly affected by social exclusion and by related pathological phenomena. It is therefore necessary to distinguish the Roma who live in some form of segregated settlement (e.g. socially excluded localities in the Czech Republic or Slovak settlements of the Roma); from the Roma who are integrated or assimilated in the company. For example, Cada (2015) states that the unemployment in excluded localities oscillates between 80-85% even in regions where the general unemployment is below the national average. That means that the degree of Roma unemployment does not correspond with the development of the labor market in the given country. The Roma constitute one of the most endangered groups in the labor market not just because of social exclusion.
