The Gypsy Debate: Can Discourse Control?

The Gypsy Debate: Can Discourse Control? Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

?They are scum, and do not deserve the same human rights as my decent constituents going about their everyday lives.? So declared Andrew MacKay, MP for Bracknell, speaking of gypsies and travellers in the House of Commons in 2002. Jo Richardson explores the extent to which such discourse not only reflects antipathy towards gypsies and travellers, but also has a power to control and shape the treatment of this minority group by the rest of society. The focus of her lively analysis is housing policy, but her discussion has a wide application.

Book News Annotation:

Richardson (public policy, De Montfort U., England) argues that discourse--the mere existence of a debate--can be used as a tool to control those who refuse to conform to societal norms, in her example Romany Gypsies and Irish Travellers refusing to live in permanent dwellings. She analyzes the discourse as found in local newspapers, a local authority debating a site provision for camping, and four focus groups with Gypsies and Travellers all during 2003.
