New article at History and Policy on ‘no platform’


This is just a quick post to let people know that the good folk at History & Policy have published an opinion piece by myself on the origins of the National Union of Students’ ‘no platform’ policy. You can read the piece here.

I am writing a longer piece on the subject, so if anyone has any material on the ‘no platform’ debate in the 1980s, especially as the policy was widened to refuse ‘sexists’, please let me know.
