What's the talk about?

David Baker is a proud Coventrian and works at Coventry University as a lecturer in criminology. His research is on deaths after police contact and how accountability is (or is not) constructed after these deaths. He has published on this issue in both the UK and US in the last few years. His latest projects focused on interviewing families of the deceased in these cases to try and understand how they attempt to get justice in the aftermath of such a death. This talk will cover who dies, how they die, and why - it will also debunk some popular myths on this issue and conclude by suggesting proposals for change.
