Richardson and Ryder examine the notions of ‘justice’ and ‘empowerment’ as they relate to Gypsies and Travellers. In a time when the Conservative-led coalition government aims to empower everyone to take part in a ‘Big Society’ it is important to assess the extent to which Gypsies and Travellers will be included in this aim. The chapter also looks at the relationship between the police force and travelling communities, examining notions of justice in how police treat victimisation and discrimination against Gypsies and Travellers. Theories of power will provide a framework, and will include the notion of discourse as control
