Traveller eviction refers to the process of removing individuals or families who live in caravans, mobile homes, or other types of temporary accommodations on land without the legal permission of the landowner or relevant authorities. This term is often used in the context of nomadic or itinerant communities, such as Romani, Irish Travellers, or other groups who live in mobile homes and move from place to place.
Evictions of travellers can be a contentious issue in some regions due to various factors, including disputes over land rights, planning permission, cultural differences, and social integration. In some cases, authorities may evict
travellers from private or public lands if they are occupying the area without permission or violating local laws.
It’s important to note that the legalities and procedures surrounding traveller evictions can vary significantly from one country to another, and even within regions within a country. Additionally, there are human rights considerations and discussions around finding alternative solutions for accommodation and social inclusion of nomadic communities.
