FESTIVAL FOCUS – Toleration: An outdated concept?

Ranging from Trump to Brexit to Islamophobia, our speakers look at what drives beliefs and the spread of fear. Why do people find it so easy to believe in fake news? What is the responsibility of mainstream and social media organisations? Our speakers include Bill Durodie of the University of Bath, Cephas Williams of the 56 Black Men campaign and Jon Roozenbeek of the University of Cambridge.
