This research, undertaken in Ireland in partnership with Pavee Point, explores the experiences of Travellers across many aspects of life. This includes accessing employment, education, housing and healthcare. It also looks at interactions between Travellers and those from other communities to understand regular day-to-day experiences. As the study was conducted across six countries it permits international comparisons to understand how the experiences of Irish Travellers compares with Roma and Travellers in other European countries.
The research was made possible through Ipsos researchers working in partnership with peer researchers across Traveller communities. This offers a unique and robust measurement of lives of Travellers in Ireland today.
The survey collected information from 4,659 respondents aged 16 years or older who self-identify as Roma or Travellers in Belgium, France, Ireland, the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom. In addition, the survey collected information on 8,234 individuals living in the respondents’ households and about the infrastructure of their halting sites or neighbourhoods.
