May news from the Centre for Law, Society and Popular Culture.

Dr Paresh Kathrani visited Setif, Algeria as part of the EU Tempus-funded ‘Abdem’ project, looking at a rights-based approach to higher education. Paresh participated in a series of workshops and delivered training on international refugee law to lecturers. The project, which is divided into three phases, is currently in its second phase and will culminate in a Master's programme on human rights and education next year.

Steve Greenfield submitted a response to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport's (DCMS) Sport Duty of Care review. This review is chaired by Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson and ‘the aim is to develop a comprehensive plan for how government and the whole sporting system can more effectively look after people who take part in grassroots sport and people who perform at the elite level, including those on a talent pathway’.

Two members of the centre, Simon Flacks and Guy Osborn, were part of a multidisciplinary team - along with colleagues from FABE (PI Professor Marion Roberts) and MUSICTANK - that submitted a successful tender (London Night Time Commission Research) to the Greater London Authority. The report is due later in the summer.
