Since the financial crisis, Far-Right and populist political parties, such as Ukip, Front National and Golden Dawn have grown in support raising a number of pressing questions.

What explains their rise? 
Who supports them? 
Why do some succeed and others fail? 
Can they be stopped?

The Challenging Orthodoxies Society presents The Rise of the Far Right, a panel discussion with three expert speakers grappling with the recent rise in support for Far-Right and populist political parties.

Police forces across the UK have been the subject of a growing list of scandals over the past decades. Critics of the police point to events such as Hillsborough and the killing of Mark Duggan amongst others as an example of institutional racism and incompetence.

However, supporters of the force argue that the police is improving and state it and the officers who work hard for it to protect the citizens of the UK everyday. Some argue that the problems within the police simply reflect divisions and prejudices within society and are not particular to the force itself.

The Manchester Debating Union asks: should we have faith in the police?
