Theresa May, The Hostile Environment and Public Pedagogies of Hate and Threat analyses Theresa May’s involvement in the creation and promotion of public pedagogies of hate and threat around the issue of immigration that are used to instil fear, stress and anxiety among large sections of the population.
This book examines the economic and political backdrop to the hostile environment, before moving on to a consideration of its creation and consolidation by Theresa May as Home Secretary and later as Prime Minister. The effects of the hostile environment on health and education are addressed, as well as its specific impacts on asylum seekers and women. The book also interrogates the Windrush scandal and divided families, as well as the author and his family's personal experiences of the hostile environment. It concludes by considering the case for a socialist future without borders.
This topical book will appeal to doctoral, post-graduate and advanced undergraduate students in the fields of education studies, pedagogy and sociology as well as those interested in UK politics.
