Human rights in an age of Trump and Brexit

Events • PoliticsLaw • Panel Discussion

To what extent do the politics of Brexit and of President Trump affect human rights? Polarised 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.
