Abstract

This article draws on findings from an ongoing study on social mobility and education of Roma and non-Roma people in a provincial town in the north-west of Greece. My focus is on employment trajectories of individuals and the labour-market transformations this area underwent in the post-war years. The diverse experiences of the residents of the locale will be illustrated with respect to their employment and work histories in an intergenerational perspective. The aim of the article is to offer a renewed approach to the study of ‘mixed’ communities whereby dominant and marginalised groups, non-Roma and Roma, are examined together. This is done here in a way that takes into account both the subjective interpretation and objective conditions for both the Roma and the dominant group, male and female, as it argues against a theorisation of ‘othering’ Roma groups. Keywords: Roma in Greece, economy, labour market, employment, education, social mobility.
