Law, Race and Brexit Britain – Launch Event for Birkbeck Centre for Research on Race and Law

Legal scholars, activists and practitioners seeking to redress the climate of increasingly hostile and explicit racism, and counter the risk of its normalisation, face a number of challenges, including enhanced executive power, heightened government surveillance, the effects of cuts to legal aid, and widespread racial profiling and stigmatisation of Muslims under policies such as Prevent. This interdisciplinary roundtable addresses these urgent issues, raising the question of what strategies lawyers and activists can adopt in mobilising against recent dangerous trends.
