Rebecca Prentice, former ESRC Postdoctoral Fellow at Goldsmiths, University of London with the Department of Anthropology has written an article on the Grenfell Tower fire for the Anthropology blog at Sussex University. Rebecca talks about talks about the fires in Dhaka and the distinct similarities between Grenfell in how strong the surrounding communities fought back, demanded compensation for those effected, justice for those who perished in the fires and holding accountable those responsible in court, for their negligence and clear failure to protect the community.
