A Tale of Tottenham: race, riots and the future

Department of Sociology/Runnymede Trust Jim Rose Memorial Lecture


The riots across England in the summer of 2011 were sparked by events in Tottenham, North London. Tottenham was also the site of the Broadwater Farm riots in 1985. David Lammy, MP for the area, reflects on the causes of these events and what role racial inequality played.

David Lammy has been the Labour MP for Tottenham since 2000.

Rob Berkeley is Director of the Runnymede Trust.
