A role is a set of permissions. Each permission configures if the concrete action is allowed inside the room. So when configuring a role you select which actions a participant with that role is allowed to perform.

Some of the permissions are Role-sensitive which means you can enable that permission to be applied only to a concrete set of target roles. For example you may want a speaker to be allowed to remove an attendee from the meeting, but not to be allowed to remove a moderator. In that case when you configure the Speaker role, you will list only the attendee role as a target role for the Remove participants permission.
