Examining the Far Right in the Midlands
One-day Conference - 1 June 2017
Time: 9.30am to 5pm
Venue: Room MU307, Lord Swraj Paul Building (MU), Molineux Street, Wolverhampton WV1 1SG
The University of Wolverhampton is organising a one-day conference on Thursday 1 June 2017 to consider the Far Right in the Midlands.
The event seeks to address questions such as:
- why has the region proved so attractive to such groups
- how significant a threat is such activity to the region
- what has been the response by the community and the authorities and is a different approach required?
The event aims to bring together academics, journalists, representatives from the policing and criminal justice system, NGOs, charities and community activists.
