Event description
The TM's 2021 conference will explore complex, interconnected issues & will consider what the future holds for GRT young people

About this event

A decade of austerity and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic have led to an erosion of civil and political liberties in the UK, which has disproportionately affected Gypsy, Roma and Traveller young people. The political decisions taken in response to the pandemic, and in particular the implementation of the Coronavirus Act by the UK government, has further hampered the human rights and dignities of already marginalised communities. Without an urgent course correction from the Government these communities, including Gypsy Roma and Traveller young people, will be left behind.

The current political climate has pitted cultural and social groups against each other, diminished opportunities for young people, and short-changed priority sectors of public policy in favour of the business sector, and it the Government seems determined to ignore the growing race and class inequalities that thrive in the UK.

The Government has additionally failed to properly invest in young people and their future; whether that be their education, the employability, or their housing prospects. This particularly effects Gypsy, Roma and Traveller young people, and the underfunding of priority policy areas such education catch-up tuition programmes has further hampered a minority which is already marginalised. Backwards steps on public policy are being taken at a time when civil liberties, including the right to assemble and protest, are under threat.

The Traveller Movement’s 2021 annual conference will explore these complex, interconnected issues and will consider what the future holds for GRT young people; with a particular focus on inequalities in education, gender, employment, economic inclusion, political & civic participation, and overrepresentation in the criminal justice system.
