Recording of Professor Mahmood Mamdani giving the Edward W Said London Lecture 2017 on 31 March 2017, at The British Museum, London.
In the lecture Mamdani examines the question of justice in the postcolonial period, in the writings of Aime Cesaire and Nelson Mandela. He looks at how South Africa's transition from apartheid presents a critique of the lessons drawn from the Nuremberg trials of Nazi war criminals.
The Edward W Said London Lecture is an annual event. It is supported by the Qattan Foundation, The Mosaic Rooms and The London Review of Books.
