Recorded on 6 October 2010 at Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building
Conor Gearty joins invited guests to initiate 'The Rights' Future' a collaborative writing project aimed at the production of a book to be launched at LSE's literary festival early in 2011. Starting this evening with his RIGHTS' MANIFESTO, Gearty will release a series of weekly essays onto the web which will probe the history of human rights, address their present state in the world and map out some of the possible futures that await this morally important but highly contested phrase.
