On 23rd June 2016, the UK voted to exit the EU. The referendum sparked a flurry of political changes in the government and a sharp rise in hate crimes reported to the police.
Suddenly the UK has to confront questions of equality, tolerance and hate. Does the marked rise in hate crimes signal a new age of intolerance? How should the UK engage with questions of race, rights and justice in the Age of Brexit? How should the city of Nottingham?
Although he will raise recommendations, the speaker will challenge everyone to consider our responsibility for living, humanely, in our post-referendum world. We’ll hear from Professor Todd Landman, Pro-Vice Chancellor for the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Nottingham, who is an expert on human rights and justice.
This event is part of a series called The Rights and Justice City: Hope, History and Being Humane, for the national Being Human Festival. It is hosted by the Research Priority Area in Rights and Justice and the Centre for Research in Race and Rights, in collaboration with Journey to Justice Nottingham.
This event is free and open to all, but please register online.
