  Abstract:  The present paper deals with intersubjective sources of the community construction and the relevant implications of these theories, from an ethical perspective, for the inclusion of some marginalised groups in Eastern Europe. The arguments developed here suggest that interactions of social actors lead to various forms of positive and negative manifestation of intersubjectivity: cooperation and consensus; but imminent dangers as well, like exclusion, conflict or violence. Empathy and recognition are considered in the following the two theoretical frameworks for understanding the phenomenon of inclusion of Eastern European marginalised groups from an ethical perspective. In such extend, I present a case study in order to verify such methodological hypothesis which is focused on the Roma community. Public policies for equalizing opportunities and promoting social inclusion are seldom considering the concepts of empathy and recognition in order to approach concrete measures. In spite of the theoretical weight of the terms involved, such approaches could be prolific in the future for an inclusive approach of excluded groups.

Keywords: Eastern Europe, otherness, political and ethical theory, recognition, social exclusion of the minority groups
