The seminar provides a space for policy-makers, elected representatives, human rights experts and Traveller and Roma leaders to discuss and reflect on recent research and policy on Travellers and Roma and how we can affect progress.

Panel discussions reflect on Traveller and Roma human rights in 2018 and discuss the ways in which the human rights framework and the National Traveller and Roma Inclusion Strategy can be used to progress Traveller and Roma rights.
