Council of Europe Publishes Handbook for Lawyers Defending Roma and Travellers

The handbook, edited and updated by Siobhán Lloyd and Marc Willers QC, is intended to be a practical tool for those providing legal assistance to NGOs working with the Roma and Traveller communities.  It aims to familiarise those who are newcomers to the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights and experienced practitioners alike with the workings of the Court, with a focus on how the Convention can be used to protect and promote minority rights.

‘Ensuring Access to Rights for Roma and Travellers’ has been made available online by the Council of Europe, and can be accessed here.
