Approche psychosociale de l’acceptation des terrains d’accueil pour les gens du voyage

Abstract : Since 1990 and 2000, French laws imply specific places for gypsies locations in 5.000 at least inhabitants villages. Relations between gypsies and non gypsies people are quite difficult. Indeed, most of the time fear and threat guide these relations. Based on different social psychology theories, two studies are presented. The first aim concerns the link between perception of gypsies by sedentary people and acceptation of specific areas from them. Perceived humanity of the target, acculturative orientations and threat are assessed. Then, links with acceptance are examined. Results suggest first that gypsies are defined with primary emotions more than with secondary ones (study 1) and perceived as separatist people (study 1 and 2). Finally, correlations show that emotion attribution, acculturative perception and threat perception are linked with the acceptation of areas.
