A Social Portrait – a Portrait of Continued Inequality
Pavee Point welcomes today the publication of the ESRI’s research – ‘A Social Portrait of Travellers in Ireland’. The research confirms what we have been saying over the years – that Travellers have benefited less than non-Travellers in developments in health, education, employment and accommodation.
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.
