Knowledge Exchange Conference: Far Right Extremism

posted by: Nick Lowles | on: Sunday, 19 August 2012, 08:46

Really pleased to have been invited to speak at the Knowledge Exchange Conference on Far Right Extremism, which will be held in London on 14 September.

The conference, which is supported by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG), will present the latest research on far right extremism, as well as underlying tensions relating to immigration and integration.

It will bring together 80-100 national and local policy–makers, academics and researchers, and practitioners and the topics include: public attitudes toward core far right issues such as immigration; recent developments and trends within the far right, and likely future directions; the profiles and attitudes of supporters; assessing the impact of far right extremism; current and possible policy responses; and local models of experience.

This conference marks the beginning of a six-month knowledge exchange partnership, which is geared toward strengthening links between academics, policy-makers and practitioners and as such appears a really important event.
