Dangerous Associations: Joint Enterprise, Gangs and Racism

Meetings in Manchester, Tottenham and House of Commons to launch the new report on Joint Enterprise Convictions... All JENGbA members and supporters welcome

Dangerous associations:
Joint enterprise, gangs and racism

This new report, written by experts from Manchester Metropolitan University, raises serious concerns about the impact of Joint Enterprise prosecutions on the black and minority ethnic communities.  Focusing on Manchester, Nottingham and London, the report will reveal new findings that give strong grounds for concluding that black people are systematically discriminated against in joint enterprise prosecutions.

Report authors Becky Clarke and Patrick Williams of Manchester Metropolitan University will speak at all events.
