A conference to mark the 20th anniversary of the United Families & Friends Campaign will take place on 26 October 2018 in London. The conference aims to bring to focus research on the issue of deaths in custody in the UK. The event will map trajectories of struggles for justice over two decades, highlighting new research and policy directions, as well as contextualised and historical understandings of state violence.
