Home Office gets taste of its own medicine, in a van.


The Home Office is getting a taste of its own medicine today with a van that calls on it to ‘Think Again’.

The billboard van was funded by the human-rights organisation Liberty.

Liberty say it is driving around Westminster and the Asian-heavy London boroughs that were visited by the earlier van.


Jimmy Mubenga: coroner finds "pervasive racism" among G4S guards.

Conference - Family Migration: Regulation and Strategic Responses.


This interdisciplinary conference brings together scholars and activists to discuss how regulatory regimes are changing within the UK and across Europe, and how families affected by these changes are responding, whether through compliance, legal challenge, strategic manoeuvring or recourse to alternative routes of entry, particularly under EU law.  The conference will also present the results of a study, carried out by Middlesex University and funded by the Nuffield Foundation, comparing spousal regulation across European states and questioning the extent of similarity and divergence in forms of regulation. Other speakers will also discuss research findings from recent projects.
