In December the Committee on Standards in Public Life (CSPL) published its report on intimidation of parliamentary candidates and others in public life. Lord Bew, the chairman, and Jane Ramsey of CSPL will talk about the Committee's recommendations, which are directed to government, social media companies, political parties, the police, broadcast and print media, as well as to MPs and candidates themselves. Sofia Collignon Delmar (Royal Holloway, University of London) from the Parliamentary Candidates UK team will talk about the impact on candidates, and potential candidates. The seminar will be chaired by Jennifer Hudson of the Constitution Unit, and leader of PCUK.
