Come join us on our last teach-in for Easter, as we wrap up with an event discussing UK-based divestment strategies in relation to the arms industry, surveillence technologies, and political corruption.
We will be having a conversation on the threads that bind academic research and arms investments, institutional collusions, and the (explicit) marketisation and (implicit) militarisation of STEM Education.
We will be joined by Andrew Feinstein, whose work on the global arms trade, political corruption, and institutional complicity is of immense value to any activist agenda on Arms Divest.
Feinstein was elected an ANC MP in South Africa in 1994. He resigned in 2001 in protest at the government's refusal to allow an unfettered investigation into a £5bn arms deal. He chairs the Aids charity Friends of the Treatment Action Campaign, and is a director of the anti-corruption organisation Corruption Watch. He is the author of After the Party: A Personal and Political Journey Inside the ANC; and an updated edition of his book The Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade is published on 25 October
