UN ‘deeply concerned’ at discrimination against Traveller and Roma children
Recommendations released today by the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) urge the Irish state to address discrimination against Traveller and Roma children and to recognise Travellers as a minority ethnic group.
From its very early days Pavee Point has lobbied and campaigned for Irish Travellers to be recognised as a minority ethnic group. We see this as a key element if Travellers are to attain their human rights and improved living conditions. We give you 4 reasons why.
