Hillsborough: the truth

Hillsborough: the truth


Written by: IRR News Team

A video of Professor Phil Scraton’s lecture on the Hillsborough struggle for justice, delivered last year at the London School of Economics, is now available.

On 27 November 2013, the IRR and the Mannheim Centre for the Study of Criminology and Criminal Justice (LSE) hosted a meeting to discuss family campaigns against the state to discover the truth about the deaths of loved ones.

Professor Phil Scraton, author of Hillsborough: the truth and the primary author of the Hillsborough Independent Panel’s ground-breaking report, spoke on the campaign for justice pursued by many of the families bereaved at Hillsborough and how the truth was eventually exposed after a two-decade struggle.

His talk was followed by a discussion which included contributions from members of black families whose relatives have died in police custody.

The video of the event can be viewed here.
