The Right to Protest: A Cumberland Lodge London Dialogue

May 14 @ 6:30pm - 8:30pm

£5 – £10
TEXT: Panel discussion, The Right to Protest, A Cumberland Lodge London Dialogue, 14 May 2024 in association with Goodenough College

Join us for a conversation about our right to protest, and its evolving role in shaping a better future.

Protest is recognised not only as a human right, but also as a powerful catalyst for change. Young people, historically at the forefront of activism, continue to engage in protests on issues such as the climate crisis, social inequalities, and international conflicts.

However, recent government legislation, including the Policing Act 2022 and the Public Order Act 2023, new forms of technology and surveillance, and increasingly dispersed centres of power, are changing how we think about dissent, and what is possible to achieve.

The 2024 Cumberland Lodge London Dialogue will explore this evolving landscape of protest in the 21st century, deciphering what these changes may mean for all of us. A panel of research, student, and activist voices, chaired by The Rt Hon the Baroness Usha Prashar, will debate the new dynamics of protest, and the impact of new government legislation.

Our panel will include Dr Daniella Lock (University of Oxford), Jodie Beck (Liberty), Robert Beckley QPM (former Assistant Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police), and Taylor Borowetz (Goodenough College/SOAS).

14 May 2024 from 6:30-8:30pm at Goodenough College, London
