Disability Hate Crime was legislated for in England and Wales in 2003. Sixteen years later too many disabled people are still being denied justice. Why is this so? What can be done?
This seminar will explore the challenges in addressing Disability Hate Crime. It will interrogate the construction of disabled people as 'vulnerable' and it will identify legal policy changes that might better deliver justice for disabled people
The Warden of Wadham College, Ken Macdonald QC will be joined by Dr Seamus Taylor CBE, Maynooth University, Professor Mark Walters, Sussex University, Joanna Perry, Independent Hate Crime Consultant and Mark Brookes, Disability Activist.
Wadham Human Rights Forum is a continuing series of lectures, seminars and discussions hosted by the Wadham College Law Society and open to all.
