Policing and the Most Vulnerable in Society

YorkIdeas on the Green talks

YorkIdeas, at the University of York, is teaming up with Angel on the Green – a community-owned enterprise – to bring ideas, research and engagement into York’s neighbourhoods.

On selected Monday evenings, a speaker from the University of York will set out a big idea in conversation with anyone who wants to come along and hear their reactions and ideas.

The seven-part series – free to attend for all – will explore some of the most pressing challenges our society is facing and the ideas and research that aim to solve them.

Policing and the Most Vulnerable in Society

Failures to protect the vulnerable have become a permanent feature of the political landscape, and policing now plays an increasingly contentious role in responding to vulnerability. Dr Kate Brown from the School for Business and Society shows how vulnerability is both caused and mitigated through policing, an area in desperate need of radical change. She will also introduce the new ESRC Vulnerability & Policing Futures Research Centre at the University of York that will address this challenge.
