Event description

Description

Seminar synopsis

Through the emergence of nascent forms of regulating business activities in the 1830s, Britain was the first capitalist country to begin to put in place system of social protection. That system is now being undone. The emergence (and ironies) of ‘better regulation’ as an attack on social protection are charted through outlining a series of key processes and mechanisms. I conclude by asking what the decline in social protection means in terms of the incidence of social murder.

Professor Steve Tombs

Steve Tombs is Professor of Criminology at The Open University. He has a long-standing interest in corporate and state crime and regulation. He works with the Hazards movement in the UK and has recently joined the Board of Inquest.
