Summary/Abstract: The Roma, initially considered a minor social issue on the EU agenda, have become, in the context of EU’s successive enlargements towards Central - Eastern Europe (2004 and 2007) and excessive media coverage, a matter of social security with ample social, political and economical reverberations. The study analyses the situation of the Romanian Roma from France with focus on the poverty – security relationship. As we may see, the research intends to draw relevant conclusions in terms of European social integration using a transnational project based on the collaboration between the origin (Romania) and the host state (France). The question we start from is: Should social integration be supported/must it be encouraged within the host or the origin state? We will find the answer in the following pages.
