Ryan Williams, Cambridge University United Nations Association talk

Over the weekend of 15 September the Cambridge University United Nations Association in cooperation with the Department of Politics and International Studies (POLIS) held a diplomatic conference for hundreds of high school students from across the world.

Students were debating topics that included “Combating Radicalisation in Western Societies”, and Ryan Williams was invited to speak on “Prison Radicalisation: Lessons from the Field”. The aim of his talk was to encourage broader thinking about the role of trust and social inclusion in responding to radicalisation by giving examples from his research in prison and probation contexts.
