         “Windrush and the Hostile Environment: Law, Wellness And Prospects For Future Generation ”

Workshop Brief:

Windrush and the hostile environment’ is part of the Law & Multicultural Medicine Colloquium 2019 and focuses on the impact of the Windrush scandal in the Caribbean community and how the diaspora can address its legacy for the benefit of future generations. The Windrush scandal poignantly reminds us that hostile political immigration decisions impact negatively on a person’s mental health, making them question their place in society and even their self-worth. Moreover, as society’s mental health can be best measured by the just and equal treatment of its citizens through the way its institutions operate, we realise that a lack of legal status and immigrant integration creates not only instability and uncertainty, but it also affects a person’s right to access: healthcare, secure accommodation, employment, education and public funds; things we all take for granted. There is now a growing body of cross-cultural scientific evidence demonstrating artistic opportunities can dramatically improve health outcomes and increase wellbeing. The term social justice is also being used more frequently in the creative arts therapies, psychology, and related multicultural medical professions. We also examine solutions to the challenges facing our children who are third and fourth generation Windrush descendants, how do they see their opportunities for education, fair treatment in employment, health and criminal justice system given the legacy they will inherit.

 Our distinguished panellists will cover:

       Windrush and socio-legal nuances of the hostile environment

–       International responses to restorative justice

       Windrush, mental health and alternative routes to communal healing

       Legal and social challenges for future Windrush generation: access to education, employment and service

       Criminal justice and Windrush community
