Past events

Guest Speaker: Ben Gunn (March 2015)

Ben Gunn is a campaigner, writer and blogger for prisoners' rights.

“From schoolboy murderer to being one of the most vocal critics of the criminal justice system, Ben Gunn's 32 years in prison leads him to look at prisons with a more cynical eye. Described by the Parole Board as 'A fully paid up member of the awkward squad', Ben provides a fascinating and unique insight into the Carceral Machine.”

Advocacy Workshop on Violence against Women (May 2014)

A Workshop was held at UWE Bristol in early 2014, which gave practical advice and education to student and external participants as to how to engage effectively in advocacy concerning violence against women.

Guest Speaker: Bernie Gravett (April 2014)

Bernie is an ex-Superintendent of the London Metropolitan Police, and led the first EU Joint Investigation Team partnered with Romania investigating child trafficking.

Half-day event: “Current Issues in Human Trafficking” (December 2014)

Human trafficking is once again high on the domestic political agenda, as the Government embarks on a fresh drive to raise awareness of this activity and to combat it with new legislation. Our speakers at this event, Bernie Gravett and Andrew Desmond, have direct experience in the fight against trafficking and came to UWE Bristol to offer unique perspectives on their experiences.
