Roma; employment and routes to inclusion in the UK

Wednesday 15 October 2014, 1.30PM

Speaker(s): Professor Peter Dwyer and colleagues from Salford University

This Seminar will bring together key findings from some of the latest comparative empirical research in the field of Roma inclusion, with a specific focus on employment. It will provide a greater understanding of experiences of Roma, focusing specifically on their perceptions of the key barriers to accessing employment. Furthermore, it will explore how ‘Roma and employment’ are sometimes framed in debates by non Roma, and the impact this can have on the initiatives that are developed. The Seminar hopes to provide a forum for discussing potential ways forward for the inclusion of Roma in the labour market, but also Roma inclusion more broadly.
