The Rights & Justice City III: Nottingham in the Age of Brexit

  • Galleries of Justice Museum The Lace Market Nottingham, NG1 1HN United Kingdom (map)

Part III in a three-part series called The Rights and Justice City: Hope, History and Being Humane, this public dialogue tackles an important issue in an open forum. On 23rd June 2016, the UK voted to exit the EU. This 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 and rights in the Age of Brexit? How should the city of Nottingham? Although they 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 and an expert on human rights and justice.

Hosted by the Research Priority Area in Rights and Justice (University of Nottingham), the Centre for Research in Race and Rights (University of Nottingham) and the Galleries of Justice, in collaboration with Journey to Justice: Nottingham.

This event is part of the Being Human festival - the UK’s only national festival of the humanities. As our festival events are free, not everyone who asks for tickets come to our events. To make sure we have a full house, we allocate more tickets than there are seats. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people. Admission is on a first-come-first-served basis, so please arrive in good time for the start of the event.
