Bookings are now open for the State Racism: Policing, Institutional Collusion and Justice Conference in London (13th and 14th October 2018). It is hosted by London South Bank University and is organised by the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies. This two-day conference discusses the pervasive nature of racism in contemporary Britain and how those committed to the principles of human rights and anti-discrimination can challenge the status quo effectively and collectively.
The event will feature speakers such as:
- David Lammy (MP) who has campaigned for dignity, respect and equity for generations of African-Caribbean people – grandparents, parents and their children – who had legitimately arrived in the UK 70 years ago and were wrongly denied their right to British citizenship with devastating dehumanising consequences. He is also the author of The Lammy Review on criminal justice.
- Imran Khan QC (Human rights lawyer representing Doreen Lawrence and core participants in the Grenfell Inquiry)
