DCU UNESCO Chair Awarded Freedom of City of London

DCU UNESCO Chair on Bullying and Cyberbullying, Prof. James O’Higgins Norman, has been awarded the Freedom of the City of London.

Prof. O’Higgins Norman was nominated for the award by the Educators Livery Company in London. At the ceremony which took place in the Chamberlain’s Court at the Guildhall, the Clerk of the Court Laura Miller highlighted Prof. O’Higgins Norman’s achievements in education particularly in relation to bullying prevention in schools and his long standing relationship with the City.

Freedom of the City of London is an ancient honour that confers traditional rights on the men and women who receive it, most notably, the right to drive their flock over London Bridge. At the ceremony James said he has no immediate plans to take up that opportunity and looks forward to continuing his work at DCU Institute of Education.
