Statement on Dr David Starkey

Gary Hughes

The University of Kent is proud of its diverse community and does not and will not tolerate any form of racism, prejudice or discrimination.

We are appalled by and condemn recent comments made by Dr David Starkey. 

He was an Honorary Visiting Professor of History at the University until 2015 when this arrangement was terminated. In relation to the Honorary Degree he was awarded in 2006 we have triggered the honorary degrees revocation procedure.
