CoDE welcomes Prof. Bryan Fanning from the School of Social Policy, Social Work and Social Justice at University College Dublin to the CoDE seminar series.
This seminar examines various diagnoses of the causes of the 2011 riots in Tottenham and policy prescriptions that emerged in the aftermath. The analysis is located within a wider history of UK urban policy and the specific local history of Haringey, the borough in which Tottenham is located. This history includes the 1985 Broadwater Farm riots. The 2011 Tottenham riots coincided with the end of an era of British urban policy, occurring as they did at a time when various community-centred regeneration programmes such as Labour’s New Deal for Communities (NDC) were being wound down or had recently come to an end.
