Policing protests: Is the balance right between the right to protest and the rule of law?

Live at Labour Party Conference 2020.

In light of wide scale disruption orchestrated by Extinction Rebellion and other movements over the last few years, Policy Exchange has been leading the debate as to where the rights of protesters end and the rights of ordinary citizens to go about their lives uninterrupted begins. The panel will discuss issues such as how protests should be policed, whether new legislation is required in light of the latest non-violent but unlawful protesting techniques and the responsibilities of political authorities to ensure people can continue to go about their daily lives.

Speakers Include: Unmesh Desai AM, Fiona Hamilton, Mike Schwarz, Fiona Hamilton and Sir Robin Wales (Chair)
