How do we ensure that international outrage on justice and rights issues is communicated and channelled more effectively, so as to provide vital moral and practical support for grass-roots activism?
The RSA and Aeon Magazine brings together a panel of expert commentators to debate the issue and to explore ways of encouraging a more positive, intelligently informed and productive international human rights discourse and engagement.
Speakers: Graeme Wood, contributing editor to The Atlantic: Peter Tatchell, renowned human rights and LGBT global justice campaigner and Dorcas Erskine, National Coordinator for the Poppy Project and former Head of Policy for ActionAid.
Chair: Brigid Hains, co-founder and editor of Aeon magazine and director of Touchstone Trust
