Racial Capitalism

  • 2:00PM to 3:00PM
  • Online

This panel brings together work in progress from a new generation of legal scholars who explore the link between law and racial capitalism. From a range of vantage points, these scholars investigate and document the central role that race and racism play in constructing the foundation of our modern capitalist economy.

It's Finally Happened: Unpacking Brexit and the New EU-UK Relationship

  • 12:00PM to 1:15PM
  • Online

Since then, we’ve seen London and Brussels fighting over vaccine distribution, and long lines of lorries in Kent on the highway to France. And, as anticipated by many, the establishment of a de facto border in the Irish Sea is creating chaos and threats of violence.
