Human Rights in an Age of Trump and Brexit

22nd February 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Human rights

To what extent do the politics of Brexit and of President Trump affect human rights? Polarized debates about UK, European, and US politics and society have seen different anxieties expressed, and rival futures advocated.

In this public discussion, two of the world’s leading thinkers consider the continuities, complexities, and transformations involved in what some have seen as a new era of western politics.

Join Queen’s University and the British Academy on Thursday, 22 February 2018 at 5pm for the latest in our Global Challenge Debates with speakers Professor Chris McCrudden FBA, Professor of Human Rights and Equality Law at Queen’s University Belfast, and Onora O’Neill FBA, Baroness O’Neill of Bengarve, University of Cambridge.

Doors open 4.30pm. There is no need to register.  Seats will be issued on a first come, first served basis.

Refreshments will be served following the debate in the Ground Floor Reception of the Main Site Tower (School of Law).

This event is organised in partnership between Queen’s University Belfast and the British Academy.
