Combating Hate Crimes and Xenophobia through Restorative Justice

Monday 13th April 2015, 17:30-21:00pm, SOAS University of London

The IARS International Institute’s Spring International Lecture will be given by international restorative justice expert Professor Marelize Schoeman (University of South Africa) and hate crime specialist Dr Mark Walters (University of Sussex) and chaired by IARS’ Founder and Director, Dr Theo Gavrielides who has published extensively in the field of hate crime and restorative justice.

Professor Schoeman will share her views about the utilisation of restorative justice as catalyst for social transformation and the prevention of xenophobia and hate crimes from the context of her recent work about the African (the) concept of Ubuntu  and restorative justice.  Dr. Walter’s ground breaking study on the use of restorative justice for hate crime will be used as a platform for debate. This is a lecture organised at a critical point in time when the UK, EU and international research and policy are calling for non-punitive solutions to hate attitudes, xenophobia and racism.

This event is taking place at the DLT Room at SOAS, University of London, Thornhaugh Street, Russell Square, London WC1H 0XG.
