Justice, Injustice and Brexit
The City Law School's Dr Tawhida Ahmed and Professor Elaine Fahey organised a workshop on 19th October 2018 which featured a strong cohort of the School's European, socio-legal and critical legal studies experts engaging with a wide diversity of external speakers from various fields of law and political economy on the topic of Justice, Injustice and Brexit.
The workshop covered three main themes of Justice for and of Whom?; Citizens and vulnerable persons, and Globalisation. It featured a broad range of legal and political views on Brexit, including significant debates on ‘Lexit’.
Professor Dora Kostakopolou of the University of Warwick Law School - a leading international authority on the theoretical scope of EU citizenship - delivered the keynote address on the rights of EU and UK citizens and reflected on the autonomy and autonomous scope of citizenship.
The workshop was a closing conference for a City Law School Strategic Research Initiative, featuring panels, events and workshops on the themes of ‘Justice, Injustice and Brexit’.
