Workshop: The UK – A case of democratic backsliding?

The Centre for European Studies and the Human Rights and Democracy Forum from Law at the University of Exeter are organising an online workshop on ‘The UK – a case of democratic backsliding’?, taking place 27-28 April 2022. Democratic backsliding involves a retreat from values such as the rule of law and human rights in order to diminish pluralism and constrain criticism and opposition, thereby moving from democratic to autocratic rule.

We have put together an exciting programme with high profile speakers as per the attached. I hope it will be of interest to many of you, and please by all means share with your networks and colleagues etc. To register for the event, please use this link:
