Book presentation and discussion with the author by: Sociologist BALÁZS KRÉMER 

A brief introduction of the book: 

“I have been to many slums across the country both privately and a researcher. There I was faced with the fact that despite theoretically having equal rights, a large section of our compatriots is excluded from society on account of their ethnic origin and skin colour. It was easy to realise that there is no path leading to middle class existence from the most backwards villages and towns in regions devastated by unemployment. What was more difficult to grasp was how and why the losers of the change of regime are being trapped by the most destitute tenement buildings of Middle Józsefváros. This book demonstrates, through the social relationships and spatial movements of poor Roma families in Magdolnanegyed, what the neighbourhood where they live means to them.”
