Whose Business is it? Wednesday 20 September 2017 – a one day conference.
The Approaches to Inequalities conference is back for its third year! The topic for the 2017 conference was chosen in Autumn 2016. Although we didn’t know that Trump would be elected president, we were post-Brexit and witnessing the rise of populism and the far-right. The Human Rights Act was under attack and the #BlackLivesMatter movement was actively protesting in the UK as well as in the US. Against this backdrop we were determined to host a conference that offered solutions, inspired with its optimism and was positive about human rights and therefore chose the focus of ‘whose business is it?
The ‘whose’ is important because it is imbued with ideas of responsibility, allowing contributors to explore human rights at a structural, institutional, local or individual level. It’s not about dismissing issues of equality, diversity and inclusion but about taking ownership of them.
27th January – 3rd February
The study trip is available to students studying Marketing, Fashion Marketing, Business Entrepreneurship or Advertising. Places are limited to just 36 students – so book early!
