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 speakers 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 at the University of Nottingham, and special guest experts.
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.
