The past decade has seen increased interest in, and attention to, the place of Gypsies, Roma, and Travellers (GRT) in both political and media circles, but the problems they face nonetheless remain relatively unknown. This book—much of it written by GRT activists—is the first to chart the history of and contemporary developments in GRT community activism, describing this community’s struggle for rights against a backdrop of intense discrimination throughout Europe.
Marjorie Mayo, Goldsmiths, University of London

"This important book provides understanding of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities, based upon insider insights from activists as well as academics. A must for those concerned with community development and equalities."

Jo Richardson, De Montfort University

“This book, written by well-respected activist-scholars and community members, challenges the establishment to hear the strength of voice in the Gypsy, Roma, and Traveller communities and to recognize the power of co-production to facilitate transformative change.”

Alison Gilchrist, independent community development consultant
“An indispensable book for anyone working with GRT communities. Based on first-hand accounts, it provides vital and challenging insights into their struggles to achieve recognition and equality in the United Kingdom.”
