Speakers


Dr Layla Skinns is a Reader in Criminology in the Centre for Criminological Research, University of Sheffield, having formerly worked and studied at the Institute of Criminology, University of Cambridge and the Institute for Criminal Policy Research, King’s College London. She has a longstanding interest in police and policing, in particular in how policing agents use their authority. A key focus of her research has been on police detention, in England and Wales, but also in other parts of the Anglophone world. In this setting, she is interested in police powers and their relationship with the law, police cultures and police discretion, and furthermore, how this impacts on equality and on state-citizen relations. She is also interested in how the public – particularly detainees – perceive the police, which links her research to discussions about police legitimacy and ‘good’ policing.

Dr Chloe Holloway is a research fellow at the University of Nottingham. In 2018, she completed her thesis titled ‘Facilitating Access to Justice: Exploring the Experiences of Autistic Individuals Arrested and Detained in Police Custody’. Her research examined the difficulties that might be experienced by autistic individuals in police custody and the support they may require to enable them to participate in the police custody process effectively. In particular, she considered whether the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984 provided sufficient safeguards for autistic individuals in police custody and whether it was consistent with wider legal obligations outlined by the Equality Act 2010 and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. She is currently working with academics from Nottingham and other institutions, autistic individuals and police officers to co-produce training materials for custody staff to help them better support autistic individuals in police custody.

Nicholas Clarke is an autism advocate campaigner for fairer treatment and understanding for autistic individuals that find themselves in the criminal justice system. On Friday June 3rd, 2005 at Birmingham Magistrates Court, Nick was convicted for Actual Bodily Harm and criminal damage following an incident at a hostel where he had been moved following a period of transition in his life. Nick regularly speaks about his experiences in the criminal justice system and has recently been involved in the ERC VOICES Project coordinated by Dr. Eilionóir Flynn at the National University of Ireland in Galway. As part of this, he co-wrote a book chapter with Dr Nell Munro and Dr Chloe Hocking about his experiences titled 'Going to Pot: Nick's Journey through the Criminal Justice System'. Nick is also a member of the Nottinghamshire Autism Police Partnership which aims to improve the support of autistic individuals in police custody.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

It is helpful if you can bring your ticket with you as it helps with the registration process. However, if you do not bring the ticket you we'll just need your name.

What if I book but then can't make it?
