3-4 December, London
The conference is being organised by Napo and Society of Black Lawyers and supported by the Attorney General Baroness Patricia Scotland of Asthal.
The theme of the conference is “Race for Justice: Alienation or Social Inclusion.” The concept behind the theme is to improve awareness of the causes of social exclusion and its manifestations; examine what can be done to address the problems and whether community cohesion as a government strategy is the way forward.
The Conference aims to bring together key stakeholders to explore issues such as hate crimes, extremism within the context of the Criminal Justice System, Guns, Gangs and Knife Crime and Young People and examine how it:
Informs policy provisions and key decision-making.
Affects strategies, action-planning and delivery by both statutory and non-statutory bodies.
Contributes to resource provision and educational support for young people
Provide communities, central and local government, police and other justice agencies with an insight of how to work together to put an end to gang and knife crime and effectively combat extremism.
