Conference at the Gates

Conference at the Gates is a protest/workshop/conference for academics and activists to resist both militarism and DSEI- the world’s biggest arms fairs. It will be a day of learning, resisting and collaborating, in an attempt to blur the lines between activism and academia.

It is part of Stop The Arms Fair –  a coalition of groups and individuals who have joined forces to put an end to DSEI and all UK arms fairs. Conference at the Gates will take place on Friday the 8th of September from 9.30am to 5.30 pm, during Stop the Arms Trade’s week of action 4-11th of September, and is held outside the ExCel Centre in London where DSEI takes place. 

To find out more about the initiative and rationale for this action, read our About page.

If you are an academic or an activist/group and you are interested in participating in a more active way you can find out more on the Call for Papers page and submit an idea.
