How Fair is Britain?

This is the question posed by the Equality and Human Rights Commission in its 700-page anatomy of disadvantage in the 21st century published in 2010. In the context of the new Equality Act 2010, and also the Government’s proposals around the “Big Society” and the future for public services in particular, this conference could not be more timely. The aim of this conference is to engage with these issue by drawing together academics and professionals/practitioners to look at challenges, and outline solutions, to make Britain fairer, based on how far we have come over the past 12 years.

Conference Themes:

  • Fairness and the Criminal Justice System
  • Fairness and Education
  • Fairness in Social Care / Local Government
  • Fairness in Health
  • Fairness in Sport

TWO NEW CHRISTMAS SONGS – NEIL SOUTHWELL

 

It’s Christmas Time!

Neil Southwell has updated his music website for Christmas! He has written two new Christmas songs: one for the pre-Christmas period and another one for the post-Christmas timeframe. There is also the snow song from when we had the unusually large amounts of snow last February – which is a bit Christmassy too! One of the Christmas songs can be downloaded, and, obviously, you can listen to the others.

Neil Southwell: Rock’n’Neil

 

My friend and colleague in the School of Education at the University of Northampton, Neil Southwell has been playing rock music for some years now. Indeed, he used to play professionally in a band.

 

He has a new web site called Rock’n’Neil where you can hear some of his latest compositions.

In addition, some readers might be interested in Neil’s essay on Robert Owen and education.
