    The migratory and settlement processes of Gypsy/Roma population in different places and historical moments have been frequently characterised by conditions of marginality and social exclusion. Therefore, it is unthinkable to isolate an analysis of this population's situation related to housing, mobility, and location from their social and economic contexts. In other words, Gypsy/Roma settlements cannot be understood without describing the main attributes and situations of this population. To present and analyse those topics, we use some examples from ethnographic researches in Europe and South America, which intend to help the reader to better understand the diversity and the common characteristics of Gypsy/Roma settlements. © 2012 Copyright © 2012 Elsevier Ltd All rights reserved..
