The third BU ‘Dialogue in the Social Sciences’ will be held at 5.15 on Wednesday 22 June, in the EBC. This series of public meetings is bringing together social scientists and experts from outside academia to discuss social issues of pressing concern. Previous events have discussed the future of HE, and crime and the media. The title of this one is ‘Radicalisation: what is it and what threat does it pose?’ As with previous events in this series, there is an impressive panel. Professor Matthew Feldman of Teesside University is an expert on the Far Right; he will be joined by Emma el-Badawy of the University of Exeter and Dr Usama Hasan of the counter-radicalisation organisation the Quilliam Foundation, both experts on violent jihadism. Professor Barry Richards will be in the chair.
The ‘Dialogues’ series is organised by Profs Ann Brooks (FHSS), Candida Yates and Barry Richards (FMC).
