Event duration: 60 minutes 


Where do you belong? Have you ever been made to question that or feel like you don’t? Many minoritised people in the past and present have been made to feel like they don’t belong. The perpetrator? Our legal system. 

In this Social Sciences Award Lecture, Zainab Naqvi from De Montfort University will encourage you to question the law and the way we are conditioned to accept its binding force in our everyday lives. Exposing what it means, how we experience it, plus how it is shaped and constructed for us.
