In this article, residential segregation of a gypsy group is analyzed as ethnicity-based and in relation to social segregation (through the Çanakkale - Fevzi Paşa Gypsy Neighborhood). The aim of this analysis is to define the conditions under which and areas in which this type of segregation provides (dis)advantages. As a result, residential segregation can be explained through three basic reasons as external factors and obligations, internal factors and willingness, and the circular interaction between these two factors. When these factors and their interrelations are evaluated, with specific attention paid to the location and the ethnic group and in a fashion respecting multiculturalism and differences possibilities of reaching urban unification or the undivided city can be achieved.
