The aim of Stefania Toma's paper is to describe economical relations between gypsies and hungarians in a transilvanian village community, more exactly, to analyse and sketch the specific survival strategies practiced by the roma population in a changing social and economical context. Toma gives a taxonomy of these. According to her conclusions, for the multiply deprived and marginalised gypsy community, resources are accessible only in a gypsynon-gypsy assymetric relationship, and for this, they cannot be considered integrated neither economically, nor socially.

Laszlo Peter's paper builds upon the data of an empirical study, participant observation and interviews. He sketches the ethnical identity construction strategies in a poor gypsy community in Moldova. He claims that this strategy in the Tatroseni community stands in strong relation with two groups of factors. First, with the historical, social and economical context these people live in, and second, with the classification practice of the romanian population. His conclusion is that the self-knowledge of the Tatroseni gypsies is strong and two-fold: it is formed by the strategies of (forced) locking in, social identification and differentiation.

The author investigates inhabitants of a moldovan village and seeks answer to the question of their linguistic strategies to show or hide the csango ethnical identity in public space. The paper builds upon data found in an empirical fieldwork: the author made interviews and participant observation in the csango village Frumosa. Her conclusion is that the ethnical identity is formed upon a situational basis, in the context of catholic-non catholic interactions. Identity, according to Simon, is re-interpreted depending on everyday situations, and made visible by over/under-communication of the main indicators of group barriers: language use (romanian-hungarian bilinguism) and religion (belonging to the catholic church).
