Professor Phil Scraton, who is delivering our annual lecture on 23 May, received a standing ovation at the BAFTAs last night.
The audience reacted as Phil walked up as part of the team behind the documentary, Hillsborough, which won the 'best single documentary' award.
We are delighted to announce that Professor Phil Scraton will deliver this year's Eve Saville Memorial Lecture, on Tuesday, 23 May.
His lecture – 'Bearing witness to the pain of others' – will draw on his experience investigating the Hillsborough disaster in 1989, the politics of incarceration, and childhood in transition, and he will talk about the role of critical research in securing truth and acknowledgement.
Some of us are hoping to hear Hillsborough campaigner and friend of the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies Phil Scraton speak at an event in London on November 27.
