The Undercover Policing Inquiry was appointed following revelations that undercover police officers kept lawful political campaigns under surveillance, assumed the identities of deceased children and deceived women into having sexual relationships.
Harriet Wistrich represents several women who have successfully pursued civil claims and obtained an apology from the Metropolitan Police Service, and others that will be giving evidence to the Undercover Policing Inquiry. Dr Eveline Lubbers is a member of the Undercover Research Group and has published research on the activities of undercover police officers.
Core issues that will be raised before the Undercover Policing Inquiry, relating to lawful police surveillance, the right to privacy and family life, freedom of expression and the law on sexual offences, will also be discussed at the seminar.
