On the two-year anniversary of former Home Secretary Priti Patel’s proscription of the political wing of Hamas as a terrorist organisation, CAGE brings together three scholars to speak on the politics of proscription.
Does proscribing Hamas serve any long term interests for peace?
Are proscription laws used in order to delegitimise resistance movements to serve political interests?
Join CAGE for an evening of insights by experts who have written on proscription and Hamas.
