This speaker series brings together activists, campaigners, film-makers, writers, journalists and academics to tell stories about law, politics, gender and development in the global south, and the ‘south in the north’. Speakers will turn their attention to the possibility of legal empowerment, activism and law, international economic disorder, secularism (and its critics), how not to write about Africa, the intersection between politics and culture, colonialism’s political logic, and decolonising international law. Previous speakers have included: Rajeev Bhargava (political theory); Akeel Bilgrami (philosophy); Saskia Sassen (sociology), and Richard Sennett (sociology).
