Hands off Dale Farm

Susan Craig-Greene is working with the 100 families living on their own land at Dale Farm in Essex. Around 50 families are living under threat of eviction by Basildon Council and their Bailiffs, Constant & Co.

The Local Authority decided to refuse planning approval on half of their land, having accepted that the first half could be built on before 2000.

Susan Craig-GreeneSusan is from Oklahoma and is an International Relations graduate of Oklahoma State University. She first came to Europe on a Bailey Scholarship to the University of Leipzig, to study the changing role of women in reunified Germany, returning to teach in Germany two years later on a Fulbright scholarship. In 2002, she left a role at an IT market research consultancy to complete an MA in Human Rights at the University of Essex, earning a distinction for her dissertation on the legal viability of prosecuting former and current heads of state for gross violations of human rights. Susan next took a placement with Amnesty International’s International Justice Project, researching and writing on the legal issues surrounding universal jurisdiction and genocide. This led to The Advocacy Project.
