Fresh from the terrorist outrage in Paris there are proposals by the British government to oblige universities to monitor subversives on campus along with a raft of other measures. The aim is to make the UK more resilient to terrorist outrages. But does Article 3 of the Declaration of Human Rights that “everyone has the right to life, liberty and security” trump all other rights, including freedom of expression, under Article 19? But how to increase resilience for London, its universities, businesses and government, what does this mean?

To discuss this we have assembled an expert panel including Noemie Bouhana from the UCL Jill Dando Institute of Security and Crime Science, Robert Hall from London First, a non-profit organisation aiming to make London a safe city for business, and experts on terrorism and on resilience, Bill Durodie and Zehra Zaidi.

A drinks reception follows in the Haldane Room, North Cloisters.
