Enduring Ideas: The Problem of Prejudice

Professor Dominic Abrams, University of Kent, discusses ‘the problem of prejudice’

Is it wildly optimistic to aim for sustained societal harmony and cohesion? Professor Abrams will examine whether the tension between our desire for social cohesion and shared identity and our tendency to pre-judge others means diverse communities will never be easy to sustain.

The evening will be chaired by Professor Dame Helen Wallace, leading expert on the politics of European Integration, British Library Board member, and Foreign Secretary and International Vice-President of the British Academy.

The event is followed by a pay bar until 21.00.

In partnership with the Academy of Social Sciences.
