Description:
Aim and Objectives The aim of this research project is to reveal how Travellers’ identity management has been shaped by the dominant settled society’s public perception and institutional policy and practice, with a view to identifying how issues relating to Travellers should be addressed through programmes supporting community development. The objectives of the textual and field research were: To identify implementation of social policies targeting Travellers in two towns; To identify pattern of engagement by Travellers with these policies; To identify changes in lifestyle and quality of life that resulted; To identify how Travellers construct these phenomena, and in relation to that, any differentials between/within groups arising from • policy differences between the towns, • differences in age, gender, family membership, • other factors that might arise in the data, such as education, training and work experience and involvement in community development.
