Abstract

In England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales the impact of devolution in the last few years has been quite significant. The different parts of the UK have separate policy and legal contexts and this is an important consideration when looking at issues of concern to Gypsy/Travellers. For example, approaches to social justice and social exclusion/inclusion have taken different paths in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales when compared to England. For more nomadic Gypsy and Traveller families in the UK The Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 has had a negative impact on access to accommodation, education and other services.
