Slums In Romania
AbstractIn the present days, we are watching in Romania, a process of differentiation of urban spaces according to the conditions of living, regardless of size and level of their development. The period of economic transition has changed in worst the drawbacks already existing in slums, which have been mainly marked by economic and social seclusion, absence of any infrastructure, dilapidated overcrowded houses without any minimum social-economic endowments, high degree of insecurity in areas where habitation coexisted with unemployment, alcoholism, drugs, violence and crime. The paper analyses the conditions in the urban disadvantaged zones –slums- existing across the world and in Romania as well, and suggests a programme with a set of solutions to improve them, derived from the experience gathered abroad by other programmes. For the successfully rehabilitation of the mentioned zones, the programme stresses the need of newly built/renovated houses, implementation of economic steps to increase the employment rate, as well as granting law assistance/legal advice to the community people, setting up facilities for education, general information, social care, social activities to create an adequate cultural environment.
