    Abstract

    The following study explores the role of space and place in the fragile relationship between Gypsy-Travellers and the settle population. Examining the ways in which Gypsy-Travellers are racialized and stereotyped and how the stereotypes legitimise the exclusion of Gypsy-Travellers from place and space. The study explores these issues using a case study of Hampshire. Drawing analysis through semi-structured interviews with public officials and conducts a media analysis of the discourse surrounding Gypsy-Travellers. The study demonstrates the highly contested position of Gypsy-Travellers in both urban and rural landscapes and in doing so the study demonstrates the power that dominant representation have in excluding �undesirables�.
