About Insights Public Lecture – Tyneside Geographical Society “Citizenship and equality”

Newcastle University presents Tyneside Geographical Society “Citizenship and equality”

Dame Vera Baird QC, Police and Crime Commissioner for Northumbria and Kaneez Shaid, Chair of Trustees, Citizens UK.

This conversation between two prominent figures in community politics will provide insights into community alliances aimed at creating a sense of fairness and a platform for empowering marginalised voices. Vera Baird and Kaneez Shaid will explore identities of citizenship and equality that are forged in the public spaces of civil society – locally, nationally and in a broader ethic of care for human rights.
