This is the second webinar of three public webinars we are hosting in the lead-up to the 2021 Cumberland Lodge Police Conference on ‘Towards Justice: Law Enforcement & Reconciliation’.
It takes the format of a conversation between Jonathan Powell, CEO of Inter Mediate and former Chief Negotiator on Northern Ireland, and Assistant Chief Constable Kerrin Wilson QPM from Lincolnshire Constabulary.
Join us on Wednesday 10 February 2021 at 11.00am to watch it live. You will also have the chance to submit questions to our guests via our Q&A session on Zoom.
Towards Justice project
Towards Justice: Law Enforcement & Reconciliation is a nine-month project exploring criminal justice approaches to addressing historical wrongs in the UK; in particular, the role of the police in promoting successful and enduring reconciliation and supporting the pursuit of wider social justice.
We are launching this project with three webinars to set the scene for our summer conference, which will lead to the publication of a summary report with recommendations for policymakers and policing and criminal justice practitioners.
What will we be discussing?
There are several ways to examine past harms, including public inquiries, criminal charges, transitional justice or truth and reconciliation. This webinar provides a platform for a candid discussion on truth commissions and reconciliation.
We turn to the case study of Northern Ireland and we examine how it confronts its troubled past and revisits past crimes and large-scale disruption. In particular, we examine the role of police organisations in rebuilding trust in justice and the state, and the various challenges involved.
This discussion is open to everyone, and supported by our charitable funds. You can join this webinar on Zoom and take part in the live Q&A with our guest panellists, by registering in advance using this link: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_5QMxN3Y1Q9W_0-oG_TAPtQ
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with details of how to join the live discussion.
If you prefer to join without registering, or you want to watch the webinar at a later date, you can watch it on this webpage or our Facebook page, and we will also be taking live questions via Twitter and Facebook.
