Beyond Hillsborough: Researching social justice

4th November 2017 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm

Professor Phil Scraton, widely recognised for his in-depth research with families and survivors on the Hillsborough disaster and principal author of the Hillsborough independent Panel’s ground-breaking report, will lead a seminar exploring the significance of critical research in securing institutional changes and social justice. He will also discuss his most recent work on the Grenfell Tower tragedy.

Other contributions will focus on investigative research in prisons and with children and young people.

This interactive seminar will be followed by a screening of the BAFTA award-winning documentary, Hillsborough, followed by a discussion on inquiries, inquests and legal reform.
