Summary/Abstract: Roma community are vulnerable to both the economic and social shocks which hamper their participation within the national employment policies. Relatively few Roma use the state’s programs for employment and entrepreneurship enhancement despite their willingness. Even though the access to these programs is still low, the perception among a significant number of the Roma entrepreneurs (formal and informal) is that the offered programs may help in the development of their businesses. The research reviews and analyzes the policies for socio-economic access and inclusion of Roma in Macedonia within the context of entrepreneurship, covering formal businesses and informal businesses as well as considering a gender perspective, and regional variation of the usage of the policy measures.
