Football terraces all over Europe are a breeding ground for far right activists and the racial abuse of players. What is it about the environment of the football stadium - and how do we stop it happening? Derek Bardowell is a journalist and award-winning charity leader. He has contributed to the BBC, The Weeklings and MTV, and directed programmes for the Stephen Lawrence Trust and Laureus Sport for Good. His acclaimed book, No Win Race, looks at racism in sport. Alberto Testa is Associate Professor in Criminology at the University of West London, and is a specialist in far right terrorism and hooliganism.
