At the time of writing this thesis there is only one - and very recent - publication devoted to Gypsy and Traveller Law, which examines existing law in England and Wales.The objective of this thesis is to provide a critique of the relevant law.Gypsy Travellers effectively live on the fringes of society and represent one of the most discriminated against minority groups.Legal study has been neglected throughout the United Kingdom and Europe, including Scotland, regarding the application and interpretation of legislation, which may assist in protecting this community.As a result of this social exclusion the community has a lower life expectancy Invariably, Traveller accommodation sites are located on the periphery of settled communities with a lack of adequate site provision for the numbers of Travellers nationally.This avoidance by society of the community has led to discrimination and social exclusion.The findings further solidify our understandings of the benefits cultural diversity brings to the workplace and confirms the important role that plays in cherishing and celebrating that diversity.You can download the full factsheet here and references are available here.
