Hate Crime Symposium
Format: CUES Conversations
The symposium will take the form of a series of 'conversations', between academics and practitioners, regarding a specific identity group's experiences of hate crime. Our aim is that the conversational format enhance the range of accessibility of the debate and lend itself to cross-platform dialogue. Each conversation is, at its conclusion, opened up to the audience for further discussion. Sessions will be 1.5 hours long in total. Conversations will last 45 to 60 minutes with the remainder of the time for questions from and discussion with the audience.
