MEMO events: Academic Censorship in the UK

MEMO hosted an event on Academic Censorship in the UK, in which a panel of experts discussed efforts to subdue the Palestinian narrative within academia, as well as to assess the methods and mechanisms used toward that suppression. Held at London’s iconic P21 Gallery, the event’s panel consisted of Dr Brendan Ciaran Browne, assistant professor of conflict resolution at Trinity College Dublin who was recently a target of academic censorship over his work on Palestine, Professor David Miller, a British sociologist with a research focus on Islamophobia and propaganda, as well as Antony Lerman, former founding director of the Institute for Jewish Policy Research (JPR) and an author specialising in anti-Semitism, Middle Eastern politics and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
