Thomas Seibert at Brexit Britain: what went wrong and what next?

Organised by openDemocracy, Another Europe Is Possible, Democracy in Europe 2025, and the LSE Civil Society and Human Security Research Unit.

Conference took place at LSE on 8 October 2016.

How is the British police crackdown bill a threat to democracy?

The Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill creates new stop-and-search powers, allows the police to put more conditions on protests, and threatens Gypsy and Traveller rights to roam.

It's been met with mass protests from Bristol to Belfast. Is this bill a threat to our human rights – and is there any stopping it now?
