Supported by Belfast based Participation and the Practice of Rights (PPR) organisation, TNC carried out extensive research among the North Cork Traveller community to reveal the nature and extent of the unacceptable accommodation conditions members of our community have had to live with for decades.

The event will launch the results of this research as well as a series of Human Rights Indicators and Benchmarks which we intend to monitor over the forthcoming year to assess whether Cork County Council and the Irish state are fulfilling their obligations to progressively realise our right to adequate accommodation.
 
In addition to launching the Human Rights Monitoring Process, we will also be launching the TNC Accommodation Rights Charter, a series of practical actions which could be taken by both Council and the state over the next year to make real improvements.
