The Academic Meets Activitist events are a key part of the ECSH calandar. Led by a faculty member from the ECSH, the AMA events engage with policy makers, practitioners, and activists from a variety of backgrounds to connect theory and the lived experiences of communities. They are informal events, held either on campus or in a city centre venue, and are always free of charge to attend. Previous AMA events include:

A Lot Done, A Lot More to Do: Trans People and the Law - HHRG meets Broden Giambrone, CEO of the Transgender Equality Network Ireland (2015)
