Notes & Changes

Joining instructions will be sent the day before the event. 

Many people have argued that decolonisation is not an issue in contemporary Britain. They argue that decolonisation is a question solely for those in former colonies to pursue, and not a question for a former colonial state. 

However, this paper disagrees with that narrative of decolonisation. Through a historical analysis of how the past century of immigration, citizenship and deportation laws have impacted BAME Britons it will be argued that will decolonisation may in fact be a conversation we need to contemplate in the UK too.
