The thesis examins the concept of marginality and marginal groups in Croatia, especially in the City of Zagreb. First of all, it confirms the presence of multiple marginalization and existence of various marginal groups in the area, who are not adequately integrated into the society. After presenting the basic theoretical origins of the concept of marginality, the thesis conceptualises the Roma population as one of the extremely marginalized groups in every society. Their example is used to show the key problems that occur in most of the other marginal groups in Croatia, the most important being: substandard living conditions, inadequate level of education, deficiency of infrastructure in the settlements where they live and insufficient awareness of the citizens about marginality. The most important areas, on which the society has to focus on in an effort to improve living standards and social position of marginalized groups in Croatia, are definitely education and employment of the marginal groups. Following the delivery of Social Policy Programme of the City of Zagreb, we can make an assessment that there has been some progress in the integration of socially sensitive groups, but this complex issue still requires more systematic and practical involvement of the state and responsible institutions to reduce the number of the marginal groups. A special part of the thesis is the methodical review of the field based study as a way of integration of the concept of marginality within the subject of sociology thought on a high school level. In the case of marginal groups in the city of Zagreb, field based study is seen as a practical, innovative and alternative approach to the subject of socially sensitive groups.
