Birkbeck School of Law presents:

State Violence under the Microscope

Panel: Dr Eddie Bruce-Jones, Dr Nadine El-Enany, Dr Chris Cocking, Harmit Athwal
This panel interrogates the way in which the state evades accountability for its violence through its selective exclusion and validation of scientific evidence in deaths in custody and protest cases. Athwal discusses the use and misuse of scientific evidence in UK death in custody cases, while Bruce-Jones examines the process by which prosecutors and judges in Germany have used legal proclamations to pre-empt scientific evidentiary analysis. El-Enany and Cocking will ask what crowd psychology can contribute to our understanding of the behaviour of protesters at demonstrations and public order policing
