This event is the first in the SCCJR’s ‘Just About…’ series, a new initiative which combines podcast and webinar formats to explore topical justice issues and to promote dialogue amongst academics, activists, practitioners and policymakers.

Each event begins with the live-streaming of a pre-recorded conversation (of about 30 minutes) involving a panel of people with relevant expertise. Afterwards, the panellists and the audience engage in further discussion (for about 45 minutes).

For this first episode/event, the panel includes;

  • Chelsea McDonagh (an Irish Traveller, researcher and co-creator of Rombelong, a widening participation programme for Gypsy, Roma and Traveller young people),
  • Coretta Phillips (an LSE-based criminologist whose interest lie in the fields of race, ethnicity, criminal justice and social policy) and ,
  • Colin Clark (a sociologist based at the University of the West of Scotland, and co-author, with Professor Margaret Greenfields, of ‘Here to Stay: the Gypsies and Travellers of Britain’).
  • The event will be hosted by SCCJR’s Fergus McNeill.

Come and join us to explore this important and too-often neglected part of the wider problem of racialised injustice.
