Overlooked and Overrepresented

The Traveller Movement has published research which found that Gypsy, Traveller and Roma (GTR) children continue to be overrepresented in the youth justice system. ‘Overlooked and Overrepresented: Gypsy, Traveller and Roma children in the youth justice system’ shows that GTR children also reported worse experiences in custody compared to other children; particularly in relation to safety, health, understanding procedures and being prepared for life after release.
