4 June
PREVENT, Islamophobia & Civil Liberties national conference

One year ago the Prevent duty became statutory and has in practice charged teachers, doctors and other professionals with monitoring people’s religious and political views. It is eroding civil liberties and deepening discrimination against Muslims who are treated as a suspect community. This conference will examine the act’s implementation across different sectors. It aims to build on the growing opposition to the duty which has seen lecturers, teachers, lawyers, students, and community organisations come together and call for the act to be repealed.

Venue: Goldsmiths, University of London, SE14 6 NW
Time: 11.00 AM – 6.00 PM
