The State of Freedom in Britain

Date: Tuesday 3 June 2014 
Time: 6.30-8pm 
Venue: Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building
Speakers: Shami Chakrabarti, Professor Nicola Lacey
Chair: Professor Conor Gearty

The British like to believe they are free, but after Snowden, Miranda and the “war on terror”, how true can this be? Are most of us free while those who seek change discover a tenuous grip on freedom?

Shami Chakrabarti is director of Liberty.

Nicola Lacey is LSE School Professor of Law, Gender and Social Policy.
