Employment Law – protecting anti-racist views in academia


April 26, 2024    
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm


We are delighted to announce that Professor David Miller has agreed to speak in Bath. David is a prominent advocate of freedom of speech on Palestinian issues, recently winning a major judgement that affirmed the rights for academics to debate Israeli policy and ideology.

In a significant triumph, Rahman Lowe, the legal representative for Professor David Miller, announced a landmark decision on Monday 5th February 2024 in one of the most closely monitored Employment Tribunal cases of 2023-2024. Prof. Miller successfully claimed discrimination based on his philosophical belief that Zionism is inherently racist, imperialist, and colonial, a protected characteristic under the Equality Act 2010, alongside a finding of unfair dismissal. This judgment establishes for the first time ever that criticising the Israeli Zionist project is protected in the workplace.

David Miller will talk about the legal case and the implications of the judgement.
