The Future of Social Justice, 5 December 2016

This event is now fully booked. If you have a ticket and can no longer attend, please cancel it or contact us so we can offer it to someone else. 

What have been the most significant successes for social justice over the last 20 years and what are the biggest challenges and opportunities coming up?

2016 has been a momentous year with issues of social justice at the forefront of debates around Brexit and global migration. It is also the year in which Policy Press is celebrating 20 years of publishing to help bring about social change and the launch of University of Bristol Press, an exciting new university press. A panel of leading writers and commentators on social justice look at the issues and suggest possible solutions:

Melissa Benn, journalist and author of The Truth About our Schools (Routledge)
Danny Dorling, University of Oxford and author of Injustice: Why Social Inequality Still Persists (Policy Press)
Kayleigh Garthwaite, Durham University and author of Hunger Pains: Life Inside Foodbank Britain (Policy Press)
Owen Jones, journalist and author of The Establishment (Penguin)

To ensure we can include as many audience questions as possible on the night, we are collecting them at time of booking.
