Undercover policing

This project intends to report the challenges that the undercover policing of protest groups and social movements has posed to those now seeking truth, justice and accountability. And most importantly to ask: What is the scope for change? Is, indeed, any change possible? Can undercover policing be made more accountable, and if so, how?

Inquiry into police spying begins

Lord Justice Pitchford today opened the public inquiry into police spying on justice campaigners and political activists between 1968 and 2010, BBC News reports. 

Theresa May ordered the inquiry after it was revealed that undercover police officers had spied on the family of Stephen Lawrence, Labour MPs, trade unionists and justice campaigns such as anti-racism groups.
