This workshop brings together members of the public, young people, students, academics, practitioners and activists working in the field of law and justice to discuss views on police-public relations in the UK.
The workshop is comprised of two sessions: 11am-1pm and 2pm-3.30pm. Each workshop includes short contributions from three guest speakers followed by group discussions, feedback and Q&A opportunities.
Drinks and light refreshments will be provided. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch or purchase food from our cafes or shops on campus.
Session 1: Is it a crime to protest?
Session 2: Should the police be defunded?
Dr Matt Clement, Senior Lecturer at Royal Holloway, and editor of 'No Justice No Police?' (2023) will host the workshop and introduce the themes from the book.
Our keynote speakers include:
Young people from local colleges and sixth forms, and interested members of the local community.
Young people who are judged to be most concerned about the criminalization of protests and recent debates about how the police operate.
